11 Most Expensive Cheeses in the World

For all of you “fromage” lovers out there, we have a treat – a list of 11 most expensive cheeses in the world. Now, the most expensive doesn’t equal the tastiest for everyone. Some of the cheeses on our list will make some people water their mouths, while other will be disgusted by them, but after all, in matters of taste, there can be no disputes.

Cheese is one of oldest dairy food in the world. It is also one of the most popular ones, as almost every culture makes some kind of cheese.  The first cheese was probably created by accident, when someone forgot a bowl of milk and came back later only to find strange, but tasty mass has formed. From that first bowl we now have hundreds of types of cheese produced worldwide.  French and Italian cheeses are among the most popular ones and we have few of them on the list.

Some of the cheeses have very peculiar methods of production. For instance, Roquefort, one of the best-selling cheeses in the world, is made in caves near French town Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, which gave it its name. The most important ingredient of Roquefort is green mold, clearly visible on the cheese and responsible for its distinctive taste and smell. Others, like Pont-l’Évêque are left to ripen for up to 6 weeks before being declared ready for sale.  Then there is Casu Marzu, one of the cheeses from our list of the most expensive ones.  Casu Marzu contains worms and is considered an absolute delicacy in Sardinia, where it comes from. Even the most hardcore cheese lovers have been known to balk when offered a slice of bread with Casu Marzu spread on top of it.

If you are looking to find out about other dairy products, we recommend the list of countries that consume the most yoghurt, but not before you read through our list of 11 most expensive cheeses in the world.
