This is a cheese we only stock during the Christmas season - this is its best time of the year, when it's so runny we have to scoop it out with a spoon and serve it in pots.
The cheese is produced by Marco Arrigoni, 3rd generation cheesemaker/farmer, in Treviglio 12 miles from the village of Gorgonzola in Lombardy. Gorgonzola can be traced back as far as 879 - farmers would stop in the village of Gorgonzola to rest and milk their cows as they travelled down the valley for Winter - this is the cheese they made with this milk.
We stock a Gorgonzola Dolce (meaning sweet) which is a sweeter, richer cheese than the Piccante style which is spicier. This is a subtle blue, very easily enjoyed, decadent and doesn't really require any biscuits or chutney, just a spoon!
