Made from unskimmed cow's milk, Gorgonzola is a blue-veined cheese hailing from Italy. It has a creamy texture and distinct smell, with a sharpness of taste that varies depending on its maturity. Produced primarily in Northern Italy, in Piedmont and Lombardy, Gorgonzola can be paired with a range of ingredients to create a mouth-watering dish, or simply served with wine.
Have a look through our collection of Gorgonzola recipes from Great British Chefs. Try pairing the distinctive flavour of Gorgonzola with the sweetness of prunes as in Bruno Loubet's prune and Gorgonzola wrapped in pancetta canapé, or roll it into the crust of Adam Byatt's butternut squash, pear and Gorgonzola flatbread tart to create a delicious main dish.
