Thanks, Callisto, that was an informative article. It is sad, for the people of Roquefort, and for us.

One of our local supermarkets today had 1.5 ounce packages of French imported Roqueforte for $7.00!!! Geesh. I'm thinking I'll be perfectly happy using other "bleu" varieties, thank you very much.
