The creamy texture and the beautiful green-blue veins that run through the cheese make gorgonzola dolce ideal for use in dishes, sauces or simply delicious on toast.
NB. Because this cheese is very delicate and soft, it is not vacuum packed but wrapped in foil.
Gorgonzola dolce is a soft and creamy Italian blue-veined cheese made from whole, pasteurized cow’s milk . It is produced in the Lombardy region.
Smooth and creamy
Gorgonzola dolce is the creamy sister of the firmer gorgonzola piccante . This almost sweet gorgonzola is a soft creamy blue cheese with a little bit of spice . This variant ripens a little shorter than other gorgonzola and is therefore a bit smoother.
In both cheeses you will find the typical blue veins that run through the cheese like a lightning bolt, a true work of art. This is what characterizes gorgonzola. The outside of the cheese is brown with red. The cheese is also known for its inimitable taste and wide application in Italian cuisine.
Gorgonzola belongs to the blue vein cheeses. Blue viking and Dana Mont blue also belong to this group. Not only Italy produces this type of cheese, the Netherlands, France, Denmark and England are also known as excellent producers. But if you want to buy a blue-veined cheese that fits perfectly in pizza, pasta or salad, we naturally recommend real Italian gorgonzola. Because the cheese has such a special taste, it comes into its own with these products.
Pure Italian cheese craft
This gorgonzola is loved all over the world and many countries are trying to imitate this product. But gorgonzola is a symbol for the cheese makers from Northern Italy. This is because we work on this product with a lot of passion and dedication . This means that any cheese that does not come from this region is no longer like a desperate attempt to recreate this delicious cheese.
This cheese has become indispensable in Italian cuisine, which is why the Consorzio per la Tutela del Formaggio Gorgonzola was founded in 1970. This foundation is concerned with the protection and compliance with the strict rules regarding the production of this cheese. In addition, the PDO quality mark was awarded to gorgonzola in 1996. Because the production of the cheese is so well controlled, you are always guaranteed a perfect cheese. Do you also feel like delicious spicy gorgonzola? Start ordering quickly!
