Oregonzola is a blue cheese from Oregon, in the western United States, inspired by Italian cheese Gorgonzola. It is a product of the Rogue Creamery about 5 miles north of Medford, Oregon.
Oregonzola is made from unpasteurized milk of Brown Swiss and Holstein cows and is aged in man-made limestone caves for a minimum of 120 days. Vegetarian rennet is used to curdle the milk.
Oregonzola has a creamy texture that is slightly granular. It is sharp and tangy, but is more mild than Italian Gorgonzola and is closer to Gorgonzola Dolce than it is to Gorgonzola Piccante.
The San Francisco Chronicle has an article on Oregonzola.
Where to buy
We were able to find Oregonzola in a specialty grocery store in Northern California, but this cheese may be hard to find in most places. Perhaps your best bet is the Rogue Creamery's website.
