With roots in 19th century France, Bleu d'Auvergne is a sweeter take on the standard spicy blue. In the rolling green mountains of Auvergne, pasteurized cow’s milk is transformed into satisfyingly salty, silky cheese with subtle graham cracker sweetness and rich, mushroomy flavors. Serve it for dessert with some Astor Apiaries Raw Orange Blossom Honey and Piedras de Chocolate.
- Bleu D'Auvergne was first developed in the mid-1850s by French cheesemaker Antoine Roussel.
- According to folklore, after a farmer sprinkled mold from his rye bread into a vat of fresh curd, Roussel created and perfected the recipe for Bleu D'Auvergne.
- Murray’s Bleu D'Auvergne is made using pasteurized cow’s milk.
- Bleu D'Auvergne is often described as the milder cow’s milk version of Roquefort
- Both cheeses were developed in the 19th century, use similar recipes, and have earned AOC certification.
- AOC is short for the French “appellation d'origine contrôlée,” translating to “controlled designation of origin.”
- Auvergne is located in the southern part of central France. The rolling mountains are covered in lush grass—perfect for grazing cows.
Harder blue cheeses can stay fresh for up to two to three weeks in a crisper drawer when wrapped tightly and unopened, while softer blues may start to dry out after approximately two weeks. The best thing to do is keep the cheese in one of your refrigerator drawers or the vegetable bin; this will help to keep your cheese from drying out. Additionally, we recommend wrapping your blue cheese in aluminum foil. All cheeses and meats are perishables—by definition they degrade over time—so we encourage our customers to enjoy the cheese while it's in peak condition!
