Gorgonzola Blue Cheese
A creamy, pale yellow cheese with streaks of blue veining, made from cow's milk. It is an Italian blue cheese named for the town in Italy where it originated. The cheese typically is available as either dolce or naturale. The dolce is aged for a shorter amount of time giving it a sweet flavor, while the naturale is allowed to age for six months or more resulting in a strong, sharp flavor and aroma. Gorgonzola goes well with slices of fruit such as apples or pears and it is often crumbled into salads.
