Dubbed the "King of Cheeses" by many philosophers, writers, and emperors throughout history, treat yourself to the rich, intense flavor and aroma of Societe Roquefort cheese. Made with perfumed raw sheep's milk that balances the cheese's earthy aroma, this sharp, salty, assertive blue cheese features a creamy texture with an ivory coloring and emerald-green veining. Roquefort's savory flavor pairs well with sweet fruits like figs, apples, and dried apricots, as well as with walnuts and golden honey. Crumble it over a salad, use to create a handcrafted, gourmet dressing, or melt it on top of your perfectly-seared steak. Or, serve on a dessert cheese board as an elegant way to finish your meals, along with the traditional pairing of Sauternes dessert wine.

Featuring a history as rich as its taste, Roquefort cheese was the first cheese to be granted French AOC status in 1925, and was granted EU PDO status in 1996, thus protecting its traditional methods of production and unique characteristics. Societe Roquefort cheese is aged for at least 90 days in the natural, humid limestone caves within the Roquefort region of France, and is crafted using the liquid Penicillium roqueforti found in the damp caves. As it ages, the exterior of the cheese is salted to prevent the growth of a rind, leaving the outside moist and the inside creamy and slightly crumbly. Whether incorporating onto a cheeseboard or into your entrees, this renowned, flavorful cheese promises not to disappoint.

Societe's master cheese-makers are dedicating to crafting their Roquefort cheese using the same care and methods used since their beginning in 1863. Strictly adhering to DOP standards, they use local and organic, 100% raw, whole ewe's milk and do not use any preservative or additives in their simple, 3 ingredient recipe. Their cheese-makers also do not use any artificial products in the ripening process, providing you with an all-natural, artisanal French cheese. Promising the highest quality possible with their DOP status, let Societe Roquefort cheese take your patrons on a journey through the flavors of France.
