    Bleu d'Auvergne is a cheese that tends to be milder, creamier, less salty and more approachable than many Roqueforts.

    The key difference between this and other blues is the openness of the curd, allowing for the considerable growth of blue mold internally. This leads to the softening of the curd as the proteins are broken down by the enzymes produced by the mold. This mold is also great for Stilton cheese.

    It is reported to have first appeared in the mid 1850s, making it a rather recent addition to the world of French cheese. It's evolution followed a similar path to the Roquefort cheeses, but with the use of cows milk instead of ewes milk.

    DIMENSIONS: 7-7/8" Diameter x 7-1/2" High (200mm x 190mm)

    DETAILS: Open bottom, FDA approved food grade polypropylene cheese mold and follower.

    COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: France

    Bleu d'Auvergne Cheese Mold

    I ordered this mold to adapt and use for brie because of its diameter. I cut a 1 1/2 in. ring off the bottom of the mold and I re-attached that shallow ring to the large upper piece with a wide rubber band cut from an inner tube. When the brie curd drained down into the bottom 1 1/2 in. of the combined pieces, I simply removed the top piece and was able to easily handle the 1 1/2 in. cheese.

    I bought this recently but have not had the chance to use it yet. Just wanted to say that it is much bigger than I thought it would be. Just make sure you check the measurements before ordering.
