An Italian cheese from the blue cheese family that is cream-yellow in color with characteristic blue veins. Like blue cheese, it has a bold flavor and crumbles easily, making it a good addition to salads and sauces.
We live near the Faribault, Minnesota caves that are used to age the lovely Amableu Gorgonzola cheese. Chicken topped with melting Gorgonzola is quick enough for weeknight cooking but also elegant enough for a dinner party. —Jill Anderson, Sleepy Eye, Minnesota
