Gorgonzola is one of the most ancient varieties of blue-veined cheese in the world and originates, so legend has it, from the town of its namesake in the northern Italian region of Lombardia. Some claims even date the conception of this delicacy back to the late ninth century, making it older than Castello Sforzesco, another exceptional piece of Lombardian history. Situated on the Naviglio della Martesana, Gorgonzola is a beautiful town with remnants of its medieval history still evident in small, tucked-away streets which are almost entirely conceded to pedestrians and certainly worth a wander.
To provide a gentle complement to the tangy richness of our Gorgonzola sauce, our chefs have chosen soft gnocchi dumplings. Sit back and savour the blue ripples in the creamy, cheesy sauce, along with a sprinkling of walnuts (a fantastic pairing for Gorgonzola) to serve. Let us transport you to a winter’s evening spent gazing along the moonlit canal in the historic Italian town which inspired this dish.
