1/10 | According to legend, on this day in 1070, a young boy was eating bread with sheep’s milk cheese under a natural shelter at Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. He saw a beautiful girl and gave up his food. When he returned to the place a few months later, he found that a mold had replaced the cheese. Its flavor was now pungent, and eventually became famous. Under EU law, only cheese aged in the same way is called Roquefort. Where did the boy take refuge?

Answer: A cave; Roquefort is the only aged cheese in the caves of that region.
