WHAT IS GORGONZOLA?
Close to the borders of Italy, lush plains stretching beside knitted rivers and lakes dominate the landscape surrounding Gorgonzola. A province bound in Italian cuisine, it is home to its namesake: Gorgonzola cheese. This blue mould cheese spares little in the way of decadence and flavour. When young, it is soft and creamy. Mature versions are stronger, piquant and deliver a pungent bite to finish.
Often referred to as blue cheese, Gorgonzola is exclusively made from cow’s milk, often boasting milder flavours than those of other blue cheeses. What truly sets it apart from other blue cheeses is its deep roots in Italian artisanship, still influencing production today. With a distinct look, Gorgonzola is versatile in its uses, adding zest to risottos, pastas or pizzas.
