Well… no, John, can’t say I agree Roquefort is the best cheese in the world and that we all agree… but it’s a fun argument 😉
“The first time I tasted Roquefort cheese, with its green-blue veins and super-pungent odor, I was hooked. If you appreciate cheese that tastes like cheese, that punches you in the mouth like cheese, and demands a full-bodied red wine to cut its mind-altering strength in half, then perhaps you’ve had the same experience.
If so, then a visit to the town for which the world-famous sheep’s milk cheese is named is a must.
Not for nothing is it the second-most consumed cheese in France after Gruyère. Also known as “the king of cheeses,” Roquefort absolutely insists upon itself. It’s not a cheese for the faint of heart.”
