Gorgonzola is a very ancient cheese. As with most traditional products, there is no shortage of legends regarding its source and origin.
Some say Gorgonzola was first produced in the namesake town near Milan, in  879 A.D.
Others say that it was first produced in Pasturo a village located in Valsassina, an area famous for its dairy tradition with natural caves that provided a constant average temperature of 6-12°C allowing a perfectly natural ambience for producing and maturing of Gorgonzola Cheese.

Gorgonzola is a straw-white, soft cheese with greenish streaks derived from a process called 'erborinatura' in Italian – in essence the inducement of mould.

It appears creamy and soft, with a unique taste. Mild Gorgonzola cheese is slightly spicy; Piquant Gorgonzola, which is aged is more blue-veined, is thicker and more crumbly.

In order to enjoy better soft Gorgonzola qualities, it is recommended that you take it out of the fridge at least thirty minutes before consumption.

Both types of Gorgonzola Cheese are produced with pasteurised milk coming from cattle in the DOP designated areas. Milk enzymes and selected moulds give the cheese its peculiar streaks. Aging lasts for at least 2 months for the mild quality, and more than 3 months for the piquant one.
