Gorgonzola Cheese

Bruschetta with Gorgonzola and HoneyGorgonzola is a cheese with a reputation. However, we find it’s assertive flavor goes beautifully in the right recipe.

One of the world’s oldest blue-veined cheeses, Gorgonzola is mainly produced in the northern Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy, Gorgonzola. Unskimmed cow’s milk is used while preparing the cheese. Generally it takes three to four months to attain full ripeness, crumbly-soft texture, and nutty aroma. It can have a mild to sharp taste depending on its age.
