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.
A taste of Oka more than 50 years ago—when the Trappists still made it—sparked in me a lifelong love for cheese. That love has ripened into full-blown passion as more and more mouth-watering cheeses are being churned out by artisan, farmstead and specialty cheesemakers across Canada. I’d like to share that passion by making CheeseLover.ca an informative and entertaining meeting place for all who love cheese, especially #CDNcheese.

Thanks for this video treat! We should cherish all our PDO cheeses.
(PS. The Roquefort tipple of choice is Sauternes, not Port!)
