From Italy's Lombardy region comes the most imitated blue cheese in the world. Many cheeses falsely claim to be gorgonzola, but they always leave you singing the blues. Authentic Italian Gorgonzola comes in two varieties: Dolce, meaning sweet, and Mountain-- the sharper and firmer version. Dating back to ancient times, this member of the stracchino family is one of the world's classic cheeses.
Almost spreadable, Gorgonzola Dolce is supple and luxurious with an unmistakable tangy creaminess. Its pale white interior is laced with streaks of blue, giving Gorgonzola Dolce a striking appearance to match its 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.
