    THE ORIGIN OF GORGONZOLA

    It is one of the oldest cheeses and among the first to have obtained the D.O.P. (Denominazione d'Origine Protetta | PDO Protected Designation of Origin) recognition. Gorgonzola is said to have been produced for the first time in the year 1870 on the outskirts of Milan, in the city of the same name, at the time recognized as an important trading center. It is also said to have been accidentally produced by a distracted young man who, to run to his beloved, left the fresh curd hanging from a hook in a damp cellar. The next day, to make up for the mistake, he added the fresh curd of the morning. Tasting it the cheese obtained, he found it excellent, so much so that he still repeats "the mistake". It has always been called a "green stracchino" and, due to the need to distinguish it and enhance its origin, it bears the name of the city of Gorgonzola, still today the productive epicenter.
