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!)
