Gorgonzola is an Italian Blue Cheese that is made in two distinct varieties – Piccante (savory) and Dolce (sweet). Both are made similarly but the technique for aging varies resulting in different textures and flavors. The Piccante is stronger flavored with a firmer, more crumbly paste while the Dolce version is creamier and milder. Both are distinct in the process of combining two batches of curds; one started a day earlier. This produces an interior (older curds) that doesn’t amalgamate with the newer curds giving lots of nooks and crannies for the blue mold to take hold and create a lovely marbling pattern.
