Aussies welcome in Roquefort
ROQUEFORT cheese can now be eaten in Australia after the government lifted a ban on its import.
The blue vein cheese, made from un-pasteurised ewe's milk and matured in caves in the Aveyron, has had to meet strict guidelines set down by Australian food inspectors.
After conducting checks on the cheeses in France any that is sold in Oz will have to include a label saying it is un-pasteurised and comes from sheep.
It makes you wonder if there has been an illicit market in Roquefort on the streets of Sydney and Melbourne, with a network of secret hideaways where it can be eaten.
