Société® Roquefort, having developed slowly and harmoniously in the caves and cellars, is a well balanced cheese. It can easily be enjoyed in salads, as an appetizer or in other creative ways. One of the great wine-cheese pairings is Roquefort and Sauternes. The combination of honeyed sweetness and salty tang is perfect. You might replace the Sauternes with a softer wine from the Loire, Bergerac or Jurançon regions or a California Sauvignon Blanc.
Great on tartines and toast, it pairs well with nuts, apricots and pears. In recipes, it complements the flavor of beef, veal, venison, beets, arugula and sautéed onions.
