Gorgonzola is one of the world's oldest blue-veined cheeses. The cheese is mainly produced in the northern Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy. Gorgonzola is a veined Italian blue cheese, made from unskimmed cow's milk. It can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a "bite" from its blue veining.
Gorgonzola Dolce is also known as 'The Sweet One' in Italy as it has a wonderful flavour that is mild, creamy and sweet.
