Cantal is France’s oldest recorded cheese, dating from the rule of the Gauls around 500 B.C. Yes this cheese might have been at dinner when Asterix was getting ready to go punch Romans, as for Obelix, well he was just interested in wild boars. Tales go that at the time of the Norman Conquest of England in the 11th Century, Normans brought Cantal with them, and people in England began making it, eventually reaching the village of Cheddar, where it became a staple product. Cantal might well be the mother of Cheddar cheese.
