Today the cheese is more well-known than the town, and not without reason. Made of cow's milk, this thick, sliceable blue has a fudgey texture and gentle blue bite. Not as sharp as Roquefort or as pungent as Stilton, Mountain Gorgonzola is a consistently delightful cheese that will convert even non-blue cheese eaters into fans. As it ages, the 14 lb drums of cheese are gently washed with a saltwater brine, allowing the cheese to stay moist and smooth. This also gives Mountain Gorgonzola its thin, pinkish-red rind. With its white interior laced with streaks of blue, Mountain Gorgonzola is an attractive table cheese and a savory ingredient in your favorite salad. Gorgonzola takes very well to fruits, especially figs and pears. Or try it the Italian way-– alone on a plate drizzled with honey.
