This rich and creamy cheese is named for the Italian city in which it was created. An excellent strong cows milk cheese, it has a slightly pungent flavor, working wonderfully with fruits, or crumbled on salads. This popular cheese was developed accidentally sometime in the 11th century, when blue/green mold spores, naturally occurring in the caves where the cheese was originally aged, grew in the cheese. What a wonderful mistake! Today this cheese is used widely in cooking, for potatoes, poultry and a variety of salads and fruits-liven up your favorite recipes with this superb Gorgonzola.
