Rogue Creamery's "Oregon Blue" is the first blue cheese recipe made on the West Coast, and it is only fitting that this classic recipe become the first blue cheese ever smoked. The result is magic! "Oregon Blue" is a classic, Roquefort-style blue cheese that is cold smoked 16 hours with Oregon Hazelnut shells. The smoking process releases a sweet, creamy, smoky flavor that balances both the sharp blue flavor and sweet, creamy taste of the 100% natural, full-cream, sustainable milk from Bonanza View Dairy.
Oregon's Rogue Creamery scored the coveted Best New Product in the World Award at the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) Food Show in New York (2005) and best product line (2006). Smokey Blue was also the winner of the of the Innovation Award - (2006 SIAL Paris, France) Don't deprive yourself of tasting what many aficionados have come to call "adult candy."
Smokey Blue is a great "crumbler" that adds a signature touch to greens and meats-- a guaranteed cheese plate or picnic crowd-pleaser. This cheese pairs well with well-rounded "food" wines that are on the fruity side and lighter on tannins and acidity: Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, select Zinfandels, Merlots, and blends.
