"The most sexy and silky cheese in the world. This is the creamier and sweeter version of Gorgonzola, in Italy it's known as 'Stracchio' from the Italian for 'tired' which is what the cows are from being milked in the course of their huge autumn and spring walks to and from seasonal pastures. The cows rest in the Lombardy town of Gorgonzola, resulting in Gorgonzola being flush with milk twice a year, historically the excess was used to make cheese."
What's it taste like? This cave-aged stunner has an aromatic buttery yellow paste shot with greenish mould. This pasteurised cow’s milk cheese is rich and spicy.
Where's it from? Lombardy, Italy. This Gorgonzola Dolce is very moist so comes wrapped as a minimum weighted segment of 200g.
