GORGONZOLA DOP DOLCE 250G
|Country of Origin||Italy|
“Gorgonzola Dolce is a sweet cheese and the most popular of all Gorgonzola. Made of whole pasteurized cow’s milk heated in large cauldrons with the enzymes, rennet, and penicillium spores, which are responsible for the signature green veins of the paste. In order for these to develop, the cheese is carefully pierced with thick copper needles, after about 4 weeks of curing. Thus, the air is let into the cheese allowing the growth of mold, to which Gorgonzola owes its characteristic taste.
The cheese has a tough, hard, and reddish colour rind. The body is soft, creamy, white or pale straw-coloured, marbled with light green streaks.”
It has a soft spreadable texture and slightly salty aftertaste. Its texture makes it ideal for spreading on bread and crackers. Vastly used in the culinary arts, it can be a perfect addition to sandwiches, hors d’oeuvres, entrées, and desserts.
