We're proud to offer this fantastic Gorgonzola Dolce DOP which won the super gold award at the world cheese awards in 2012, making it one of the top 50 cheeses in the world.
Gorgonzola Dolce is the 'sweeter' gorgonzola - milder and much softer than its piccante counterpart. It is made using pasteurised cow's milk and is aged for 3 months. It is very creamy and almost spreadable in texture with a light piquancy.
Gorgonzola has been made since the early Middle Ages, but became marbled with greenish-blue mold only in the eleventh century and is frequently used in Italian cooking. The name comes from Gorgonzola, a small town near Milan, Italy, where, it is reported, the cheese was first made in 879.
