About

Gorgonzola is an Italian cow's milk cheese named after the town Gorgonzola which is outside of Milan. The cheese dates back to the 9th century, with the blue-green mold developing accidentally sometime around the 11th century. As with most blue-veined cheeses, Gorgonzola was originally aged in caves and the blue veins of mold developed from spores naturally present in the caves. Today, again like most blue-veined cheeses, the mold culture is mixed right in with the curds in the cheese-making process to maintain consistent standards. The texture is rich and creamy and with a mild and earthy ‘blue bite’ characteristic with blue-veined cheeses.

  • Tasting Notes
    • Salty taste with a strong piquant flavor
    • Savoury
    • Rich creamy
    • Buttery
    • Light creamy, organic musty aroma

    While still embodying the classical “Blue Bite” and piquant flavor, the taste is slightly more salty and the texture is firmer, making it easy to crumble into sauces or over salads, pizzas and pastas.

  • Texture
    • Semi soft texture with smooth & creamy mouthfeel
    • Crumbly on cutting
    • Some small crystals maybe present
    • Yet delicately smooth in your mouth
