1/2 pound of Gorgonzola Dolce DOP which is a soft, blue, cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk. The cheese took its name from a small town in Lombardy near Milan, where it was born in the 12th century. It has a pale yellow, buttery and melty paste speckled with a homogeneous distribution of blue and green veins. The rind is compact, rough, hard and grey/pinkish in colour but not edible. Flavours are deep & sweet with notes of sour cream and lactic tang. It takes a minimum of 45 days ageing to let Gorgonzola demonstrate its unique characteristics.
