Description

This robust cheese from northern Italy is one of the oldest blue-veined cheeses in the world. It’s a delight on a cheese platter served with a little pot of honey. Or you could melt it in risotto for a deeply satisfying taste sensation.

Gorgonzola picante is great in pasta and because of its robust flavour profile, its great with honey and a cheese platter.
