Gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese originating from Italy. It is made from cow's milk and known for its creamy texture and bold, tangy flavor. Gorgonzola is commonly used in both savory and sweet dishes. It pairs well with fruits like pears and grapes, making it a popular choice for cheese platters and salads. It can be crumbled over pizzas, added to pasta dishes, or melted into sauces for a rich and creamy flavor.
