THE LEGEND OF ROQUEFORT …
A shepherd, in a hurry to court a young lady, had forgotten a piece of rye bread and sheep’s curd in the scree of the Combalou mountain. A few weeks later, he found his meal, but it had now turned bluish in colour. In fact, the Penicilium roqueforti present in the craks had naturally done its work on the bread, and on the cheese too. The young man tasted it and contrary to all expectations, enjoyed it! Thus Roquefort was born.
