The story of Bleu d’Auvergne cheese goes that an Auvergnat farmer sprinkled mould from rye bread on his milk curd and then pierced the curd with a needle. This allowed the air through and the curd developed blue veins. Bleu des Neiges is sweeter than Bleu d’Auvergne, but keeps a special blue cheese taste, being very creamy.
La Société Laitière de Laqueuille was created in the late 40’s by the mayor of Saint-Julien-Puy-Lavèze. It is now a renowned producer of the Fourme d’Ambert and Bleu de Laqueuille cheeses.
