Cantal is one of the oldest French Cheeses, predating both Roquefort (11th century) and Livarot (13th century). In fact, Pliny the Elder mentions Cantal in his "Historia Naturalis" written in the 1st Century AD. Cantal was originally produced by putting the curd into "le formage", a wooden cylinder, which is believed to be the origin for the French word for cheese. Named after the Cantal Mountains in Auvergne, this cheese has been dear to the French throughout history. For example, in medieval times it was the courtly custom to send a gift of cheese to impress or to people one admired.
