Video: What makes Roquefort Roquefort—in 1927 and today

It’s Video Wednesday and we are off to France and the village of Roquefort.

Thanks to Kate Harding at Culture magazine for this wonderful archival video that documents Roquefort-making back in the 1920s. Great for mustache aficionados, or anyone looking for a glimpse into cheesemaking’s past. Following the silent show, there’s a modern piece on how Papillon makes the King of Cheese today.

Sit back and enjoy! Better yet, watch the video while nibbling on a piece of Roquefort and sipping a port wine.

  1. Thanks for this video treat! We should cherish all our PDO cheeses.

    (PS. The Roquefort tipple of choice is Sauternes, not Port!)
