Bleu d'Auvergne was first developed in the 19th century by French cheesemaker Antoine Roussel. A delightful accident Antoine first made blue cheese by mistake. Taken with its flavor he determined to figure out how to recreate the tasty blue veins of mold again.

After several failed attempts Roussel discovered that the application of rye bread mold created the delicious cheese. Pricking the curd with a needle to insert the spores helped create a beautiful veining, enhancing both the look and flavor of his cheeses.
