Description

Gorgonzola Piccante Cheese Whole Wheel 12.5kg.  Gorgonzola’s greenish-blue mold gives this cheese a sharp flavor that contrasts nicely with the creamy paste. It is sharp, crumbly and assertive in flavour. It pairs well with berries, pears, peaches, plums, walnuts and honey. Gorgonzola is also excellent in risotto and polenta, mixed into vinaigrette, melted on pizza or used as a dip. Legend has it 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. Aged 6-12 months.

Price per whole wheel (Approximately 12.5kg). Equates to $58.99kg.
