Gorgonzola Picante is a very robust strong tasting cheese. It can also have a spicy taste to it. An indicator of the strength of the cheese is the paste of the interior, the darker it is the stronger it will taste.



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.


Pairing Recommendations

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