Roquefort, A History by Robert Wernick

Roquefort is a unique product. Anyone can make a cheese with holes in it and call it Swiss. Anyone can mix mold with curdling milk and produce a cheese that he or she can call "blue."

But Roquefort is not to be confused with ordinary blue cheese. For one, it is made with ewe's milk, not cow's, and hence has a juicier texture. For another it is made under ideal conditions in a refrigerating and humidifying plant that would cost a fortune to duplicate, but is provided in France courtesy of Mother Nature.

Here, in this essay by award-winning journalist Robert Wernick, is Roquefort's tasty story.

About the Author

Salvador Dali once called him the stupidest man in the world; Cary Grant described him as the smartest. New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick is certainly talented. He has penned more than a dozen books and has contributed to a host of magazines, ranging from Life to Vanity Fair. His topics are as varied as the birth of town planning in the Mesolithic Age to a soul-baring Ferris-wheel ride with Marilyn Monroe to a climb up Mount Sinai.
