Smelly Cheese Co.
The classic Italian blue cheese, Gorgonzola, comes in two varieties, Dolce and Piccante. Dolce is a creamy, sweet version of the traditional Piccante - so creamy and soft we serve it "by the scoop". After four weeks of maturation, these cheeses are pierced to allow the ‘oxygen loving’ blue mould to grow. Once spiked, the cheeses are wrapped in foil to retain moisture. Its pale white to straw coloured interior is marbled with streaks of blue-green mould and the degree of piquant flavour increases as the cheese ages. The texture is soft and creamy with little wells of moisture. The flavour is smooth with a slight tang balanced with a little saltiness.
