Example text

The relative humidity varies only a point or two from ninety-five percent. Hardly an inviting environment. The tourist who visits the caves where the cheese is made today and sticks his nose into one of the fleurines may well think that the strong cold blast - strong enough to put out a candle - comes, like the wind in the ballad of Frankie and Johnnie, from the southeast corner of Hell. No animals choose to live here, though rats and sometimes dormice come down, lured by the smell of cheese. The fleurines are not quite lifeless, however.

They provide a breeding ground for a tiny mold, Penicillium Roqueforti, so called because this was the spot where the mold was first identified and where it flourishes most happily. For this little fungus, which is the secret of the taste of the cheese, by happy coincidence lives best in a moist habitat where the temperature generally hovers around fifty degrees F. You can see little colonies of Penicillium glistening against the dark rock on any fleurine or any man-made wall inside the rockslide.

The news of this discovery spread over the trade routes of old Europe. When the Romans built the great highway - the Via Domitia - that linked the Pyrenees with Italy, it passed not far from Roquefort, and it became relatively easy to send the cheeses to the seacoast and then by coastal shipping to Rome. The Romans, it seems, fell in love with Roquefort. Like all the Mediterranean peoples down to our own time, they were used to cheeses, most of which tended to be dry and hard. Roquefort, by contrast, was smooth and soft and tasty, and the Roman aristocrats were willing to pay high prices to have it on their tables.
