Add a touch of gourmet flavor to your menu with this Stella Gorgonzola cheese! Thought to have first been made in Italy in the late 9th century, Gorgonzola cheese was originally aged in caves where the environment encouraged the growth of Penicillium bacteria - the mold that gives this and other "blue" cheeses their distinctive blue-green veins. Though the factories where Stella cheese is produced and aged today are a far cry from the caverns and grottos of its past, their precisely controlled temperature and humidity makes them the perfect environment to encourage the growth of the bacteria that make this cheese truly stand out! The result is a pleasantly mellow, tangy, earthy cheese with a notable creaminess that sets it apart from other blue cheeses.
For a classic treat, stuff green olives with this blue cheese and serve as a refined appetizer! To display the complexity of its flavor on a cheese plate or charcuterie board, try serving this Gorgonzola alongside tart fresh fruits like grapes, apples, kiwis, or strawberries, intense jams and marmalades, or sweet spring flower honey. When considering beverage pairings, opt for well-aged red wines that are strong enough to stand up to the bold personality of this cheese. Bordeaux, Zinfandel, and Sauternes are particularly well-suited to this cheese. To incorporate the tantalizing flavor of this cheese into your menu, try including it in creamy dips, spreads, or homemade salad dressings. For more traditional Italian fare, fold this cheese into a warm risotto during the last step of cooking, or serve with short pasta such as penne or rigatoni. It is also an essential ingredient in a classic piazza ai quattro formaggi - four cheese pizza! Whether you choose to include the sharp flavor of this Gorgonzola in your recipes or serve it simply on its own, it is a great way to bring a classic Italian flavor to your menu!
