An exceptional cheese, this Gorgonzola Piccante is widely recognized as the most versatile cheese on the market. A delightful blend of characteristics: it perfectly marries a subtle kick of spice with aromatic richness. Delicate yet complex serve alongside everything from hearty bread and cured meats to pears, nuts, and figs. Melt onto pasta and pizza or add to savory soups and stews.
Originally created in the Italian Alps in the 16th century, Gorgonzola Piccante’s singularly delicious taste has quickly made it one of the most popular cheeses on the market. Now produced all over Europe in an attempt to keep up with the constant demand.
One of Italy’s most beloved creations, Gorgonzola cheese is made from cow’s milk and aged in mountain caves. A striking cheese, its pale white paste is riddled with thick blue marbling and a spicy finish. Firmer than the dolce varieties, this Gorgonzola grates beautifully and melts well.
