Description

Gorgonzola Dolce Cheese Whole Wheel 12.5kg is a younger and milder, version of aged Gorgonzola (Piccante). Dolce, by nature of its shorter aging time, is wetter and more ivory coloured than Gorgonzola Naturale. It has a soft, spreadable texture and slightly salty aftertaste. Its texture makes it perfect for spreading on bread and crackers. It is also excellent in risotto and polenta, mixed into vinaigrette, melted on pizza or used as a dip. Gorgonzola shines when paired with berries, pears, peaches and plums. It is said that this cheese was created by accident: An inattentive cheesemaker left some fresh milk out to drain for too long. Hoping it wouldn’t make a difference to the batch of cheese he planned to make, he used the resulting curd anyway. Months later, he found that some of his cave-aged wheels had a strange blue-green streak of mold. With some trepidation, he tasted the new cheese and found it was terrific. Today, most gorgonzola is still cave aged for some period of time.

Price per whole wheel approximately 12.5kg. Equates to $48.99kg.
