Product description

    Details

    This classic blue Gorgonzola Dolce cheese from northern Italy is mild and creamy with a soft spreadable texture and a slightly salty aftertaste.

     

    It is aged for only a short time giving it a sweeter, milder flavour than the spicy Gorgonzola Piccante which is matured for longer.  ("Dolce" means sweet.)

     

    It is a very versatile cheese with any number of uses, such as in risottos, on top of hot polenta or simply served with some crackers, pears and honey to complement its smooth, creamy, mild taste.  Truly yummy!

     

    One of the Producer's most notable cheeses.

      

    History

    Gorgonzola is one the of oldest blue cheeses in the world.  It is said that a young Romeo, having been distracted by his lady-love, accidentally left his cheese curds to drain overnight. Hoping to hide his mistake, he mixed them in with the morning curd and a few weeks later noticed blueing. Upon tasting the cheese, he realized he had made an unintended but delicious discovery and Gorgonzola came into being. 

     

    ❆ How to Store

    Gorgonzola Dolce needs to be refrigerated. We will wrap it in waxed paper, pack it in a foil-lined bag and protect it with an ice-pack. When you receive your parcel you should put the Gorgonzola in the fridge leaving it in the waxed paper and the bag - it will typically last for 2-3 weeks stored like this.
