Quick Reference

A sharp-flavoured blue-veined creamy Italian cow's-milk cheese. Its rather alarming name comes from nothing more fierce than the village of Gorgonzola, near Milan, where it was first made. Legend has it that it originally acquired its blue veins accidentally after being stored longer than intended in local innkeepers' cellars.
