Roquefort cheese

   The Roquefort is a strong-tasting cheese made from sheep's milk to which one of the blue or blue-green Penicillium molds has been added. True Roquefort cheese comes from Roquefort, France. There, manufacturers cure the cheese in natural caves that have the right atmospheric conditions for proper curing. The milk supplies the distinctive flavor. Roquefort cheese may be used in salad dressings. It is also served with fruits as an appetizer.
