No Italian cheeseboard is complete without a soft wedge of creamy Gorgonzola Piccante but it can be served in so many other ways too.

Characteristics: creamy, soft, yellow paste heavily veined with green-blue mould; delicate taste of paste contrasts with strong, full flavour with sharp, spicy tang from the veins.

Best with: eat on its own with a sweet Vin Santo or stir into a risotto or buttered pasta.
