Creamy Dolce Gorgonzola

Areas of Production

Northern Italy: The Lombardy and Piedmont regions; and the provinces of Milan, Pavia, Novara, and Bergamo.


This cheese takes its name from the town of Gorgonzola near Milan, where it was first crafted towards the end of the 10th century. Since the beginning of the 20th century, Gorgonzola has become one of the most exported Italian cheeses.

Gorgonzola is available in two different types: Gorgonzola Dolce (Creamy Gorgonzola) and Gorgonzola Piccante (Mountain Gorgonzola).

Sorella Creamy Gorgonzola is a creamy and buttery blue cheese, matured for 50 days and originates in the province of Bergamo. The greenish-blue penicillin mold imparts a sharp, spicy flavor and provides an excellent contrast to the rich, velvety cheese.

Sorella Creamy Gorgonzola is ideally eaten with fruits such as apricots, pears, apples, or nuts and cashews. It is also excellent melted into a risotto, pasta, or on top of mashed potatoes.

Veal Gorgonzola


3 or 4 veal scaloppini

rice flour for dredging

salt and pepper

2 tablespoons of olive oil

3/4 cup of white wine

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup of Sorella Creamy Gorgonzola


Give each veal cutlet a pinch of salt and a sprinkling of freshly cracked black pepper.

Splash out some rice flour on your plate and then dredge each piece of meat in the flour, shaking off the excess.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium high and when hot, add in your olive oil and a moment later, your veal cutlets – frying for 2 minutes on each .

When the meat has cooked through, take it out of the pan and reserve. Drain off any oil that remains in the pan and then return the pan to heat. Immediately add in the white wine to deglaze the pan, scraping up the bottom to release any and all tasty browned bits! Let the wine come to a simmer and simmer until it is reduced by about half.

Add in the cream and the cheese and then cook until the cheese has melted into the sauce.

Turn the heat down to very low, add the meat back to the pan and let it sit very gently in the sauce for 3-5 minutes.

Makes 3-4 servings.
