Gorgonzola Piccante, +/-1.5kg
Gorgonzola is one of Italy’s finest cheeses. It is widely known for its blue veins, pungent flavour and strong scent. There are two types of gorgonzola which vary in age and flavour. Gorgonzola piccante is the older of the two and as such it possesses a much tangier flavour. During the three to four month ageing process the cheese is pierced with metal rods creating air channels, allowing the mould spores to grow, giving the gorgonzola its characteristic blue veins. Gorgonzola piccante is rich and creamy with a spicy, earthy flavour and nutty aroma. Melt into a risotto or make a gorgonzola cheese sauce to mix through pasta with bacon and spinach.
