Gorgonzola is an Italian cow's milk cheese named after the town Gorgonzola which is outside of Milan. The cheese dates back to the 9th century, with the blue-green mold developing accidentally sometime around the 11th century. As with most blue-veined cheeses, Gorgonzola was originally aged in caves and the blue veins of mold developed from spores naturally present in the caves. Today, again like most blue-veined cheeses, the mold culture is mixed right in with the curds in the cheese-making process to maintain consistent standards. The texture is rich and creamy and with a mild and earthy ‘blue bite’ characteristic with blue-veined cheeses.
