Gorgonzola is the most popular Italian blue cheese. The 'dolce' version or often referred to as sweet Gorgonzola, is characterized by a soft texture with a limited soft blue-green marbling. The flavor if this, almost spreadable cheese is delicate, coming from at least 50 days of aging.
Gorgonzola Dolce is made from pasteurized milk from cows living in the Piedmont and Lombardy regions of Italy. Once the milk is in the factory it is tested, then pasteurized and transferred to tanks or vats where it is incubated with a mixture of milk enzymes, penicillium Roqueforti, selected yeasts, and animal rennet - and that is all that goes into a Gorgonzola.
Gorgonzola Dolce is velvety with an unmistakable tanginess. With its tender rind, its pale to white interior and the laced with streaks of blue, giving Gorgonzola Dolce a mildly blue appearance matching its mildly piquant flavor.
Enjoy Gorgonzola Dolce as a table cheese, spread thickly on a piece of crusty baguette, or as an ingredient in your favorite salad dressing, or just the mild blue you need for a cheese sauce with your favorite pasta.
