Gorgonzola creamy cheese, often simply referred to as Gorgonzola, is a highly esteemed Italian blue cheese with a rich history and distinctive characteristics. Gorgonzola takes its name from the town of Gorgonzola in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, where it is believed to have originated in the 9th century. It is one of Italy's most iconic blue cheeses and is known worldwide for its unique taste. Gorgonzola is made from cow's milk, and its production involves a specific technique that leads to the development of characteristic blue-green veins. After pasteurization, the milk is inoculated with Penicillium mold spores, which give the cheese its distinct blue veining. It is then allowed to ripen in a controlled environment.
  • Gorgonzola is famous for its strong, bold flavour profile. It has a creamy and crumbly texture, with marbling of blue-green veins running throughout. The taste is rich, tangy, and somewhat salty, with a pronounced earthiness and a hint of spiciness. The creaminess of the cheese balances the sharpness of the blue veins, resulting in a harmonious blend of flavours.
  • Gorgonzola is a versatile cheese that can be enjoyed in various culinary applications. It is often crumbled or melted into sauces for pasta, used as a topping for pizzas and salads, or spread on crackers and bread. Its creamy texture makes it a popular choice for dips and dressings. Gorgonzola pairs exceptionally well with fruits like pears and figs, as well as with honey and nuts.
  • Similar to Grana Padano, Gorgonzola cheese is recognized as a PDO product in Europe, which means it must be produced in specific regions of Lombardy and Piedmont, following strict guidelines to be labeled as "Gorgonzola."
