ROGLife is way too short to settle for mass-produced supermarket cheese. That is why I always look for interesting cheeses made by people who love cheese and are committed to the time-honored traditions of cheese making, like the fine folks at Oregon’s Rogue Creamery.

About Rogue Creamery: “Inspired by a sense of place for 80 years, Rogue Creamery draws from the beauty and flavors of Southern Oregon’s Rogue River Valley to create eight handcrafted blue cheese recipes, cheddar cheese and TouVelle. Over the last half century, Rogue Creamery blue cheeses have received international acclaim. The certified sustainable whole milk we use to make these original blues comes from Rogue Creamery’s dairies along the banks of the rugged and scenic Rogue River.”

Try Rogue Creamery’s Oregonzola: “A nod to Rogue Creamery’s Italian heritage, Oregonzola blue cheese was developed by Ignazio Vella in the late 1990’s. The smooth and yielding texture of the paste and clearly defined blue veins are reminiscent of the great Gorgonzola but the bouquet of fruit, sweet cream and tangy flavors set it apart as an American original.”
