Gorgonzola is a soft, creamy Italian blue cheese that is a member of the Stracchino family of cheeses. Gorgonzola originated in the town of the same name near Milan, Italy in the 8th century. Prior to being called Gorgonzola, the cheese was generically called “green stracchino”. By 1970, a Consortium for the protection of Gorgonzola cheese was created in order to protect and oversee the production of Gorgonzola. In 1996, Gorgonzola was granted PDO (Designation of Protected Origin) status, which governs how and where Gorgonzola is produced in either the Piedmont or Lombardy regions of Italy.
