Food Facts

Blue cheese dressing is sometimes referred to as Roquefort dressing, but Roquefort is a particular kind of blue cheese made of sheep’s milk. It comes from the town of Roquefort in southwestern France. Regular blue cheese, a crumbly cheese that also has blue veins of mold, is made from cow’s milk.


Shopping Tips
There are several brands of Roquefort cheese sold at supermarkets. I bought mine at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. If you can’t find it you can use blue cheese.
