Detailed Description for Roquefort 3.3 lb. half wheel. French Cheese
Roquefort Sheep milk uncooked,
unpressed soft cheese with veins of blue mould
APPROPRIATE WINES: Sauternes or Porto
Probably the world’s greatest blue cheese. It is produced entirely from the
milk of the ewes that feed on the vast plateaux found in the Aveyron. It is
the quality of the milk, the processing of the curd, the adding of "penicillium
roqueforti" and finally the ripening in natural caves that give us this unique
and remarkable cheese. The exterior aspect of a Roquefort should be white and
Texture: The "pate" should be cohesive at the same time slightly crumbly. The
texture is buttery with blue veins of mold extending to the edges. The smell
has a subtle register of sheep’s milk. Taste: The taste is complex, but quite
outstanding... soft, creamy, slightly salty, with an after taste that leaves
the palate craving for more. A good Roquefort should never be aggressive. COMPLIMENTS:
This cheese goes well with sauces, canapes, salads and in puff pastry pies.
