Roquefort Societe 'B' - 3 lb
Roquefort is considered the "King of cheeses." It has a tingly pungent taste and ranks among blue cheeses. Only the milk of specially bred sheep is used and is ripened in limestone caverns. It has the cylinder-shape with sticky, pale ivory, natural rind. Ripe Roquefort is creamy, thick and white on the inside and have a thin, burnt-orange skin. The ripening of the cheeses is in the natural, damp aired caves found under the village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. 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 faintly shiny. They should be cohesive, at the same time slightly crumbly. This cheese has a distinct bouquet and a flavor that combines the sweet burnt-caramel taste of sheep's milk with the sharp, metallic tang of the blue mould.

Great Cheese and fast deliveryFeb 07, 2010
By M. Grazi
I ordered Societe Roquefort cheese. The shop was out and called me to see if I would want a different brand. The other brand did not meet the expectation so I was called again to see if I wanted to wait for the societe brand. This shop spend the time to inform me about the out of stock cheese and the substitute. I respect that they kept me informed and I received the cheese I wanted. It was excellent.
