I can never resist the cheese counter at my local co-op. It has a small selection of cheeses, but they’re meticulously curated by a cheese enthusiast whose palate seems in tune with my own, and I always love everything he recommends. Last time I was in the store I browsed by myself, however. I know I probably should have chosen a cheese based on the type of milk used, or the region from which it hailed, but I will admit to having used one criterion only to select this cheese: its name.
Oregonzola. Isn’t that cute? See how they did that? A blue cheese, a local spin, a clever pun, and I’m sold. And it was quite nice, I must say.
