Do you remember the beloved cartoon character Roquefort from “Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers”? Would you like to be like him? We don’t mean becoming fat, growing a red mustache, and a long tail. This guy knew a lot about cheese! The abundance of aromas and flavors allows everyone to choose a favorite type that will take its rightful place in the refrigerator.
