Expert Tips

  • Roquefort is a blue cheese that has been enjoyed since Roman times. Made from sheep’s milk, this “king of cheeses” is aged for at least 3 months in limestone caverns near the Roquefort village in southwestern France.
  • Eating untoasted walnuts is like eating untoasted bread—there's no comparison! To toast nuts, cook them in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until you can smell the toasted aroma.
