Roquefort cheese

On August 31st, 1666, Roquefort cheese acquired its "lettres de noblesse" (letters patent of nobility) once and for all. Indeed, a ruling of the Parliament in Toulouse decreed that only the cheese coming from the natural caves of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon was genuine. Therefore, any cheese coming from any other place was declared counterfeit.

It is a form of spun sugar that is produced in a special machine and sold at fairs. It is sweet and sticky, and though it feels like wool to the touch it readily melts in the mouth. It does not have much of an aroma although the machine itself has a cooked sugar smell when in operation.

Scotland vs France - Murrayfield.

A library is not a place to watch Rugby, isn't it!!! But at toulouse during an event like a rugby match everything is different. Nobody reads or studies even in a library!! Nobody any more breathes under the pressure of the gamme. Rugby match is crucial for people and take care! I advise you to not disturb anybody. It could be dangerouse for you!!

Scotland 20-16 France
