Roquefort: The Revenge


Looks like shipments of Roquefort cheese and other European comestibles won't be interrupted after all. The stinky delight was threatened by a 13-year long trade dispute over E.U. importation of U.S. beef, which is now on the verge of being resolved by what seems like a pretty obvious compromise:

Under the deal, the EU will buy more US beef in return for keeping a ban on hormone-treated beef, which it claims poses a threat to human health.

More from me on the silliness of trade wars here, and my favorite libertarian-leaning cheesemonger here, or watch her below.
