One gorgonzola legend is an example of mistake leading to the invention of a cheese that has become very long-lived. The story claims that an innkeeper in the town of Gorgonzola had too much Stracchino cheese (made from the tired or stracca Cows returning to the valleys from mountain pastures) that didn't get used up quickly enough. After developing mold on and Throughout the cheese, he questioned whether they were still any good. Unable to absorb the potential loss, he served the Cheese anyway. Coincidentally, the customers liked it so much, they had to increase production and give them time to mold. A More likely history is that the overall production from the stracca cows was too much milk to hold, so it was made into cheese And stored in caves where they would naturally go blue over time. The method (still used today) starts with producing curt from An evening milking, allowing it to settle overnight and topping it with curd from the morning milking. Cheeses are now pierced To accelerate the veining (referred to as parsley or erborinato) of the Penicillium glaucom bacteria. Gorgonzola "Bebiverde" Is a dolce-style cheese, with a wet, fragile rind? It is round and creamy with a relatively mild, sweet flavor. Gorgonzola "Piccante" is an aged version also referred to as naturale, stagionato or mountain Gorgonzola. It is firm and crumbly with a Dry, thick rind and sharp flavor.

Taleggio shares a history with Gorgonzola in that it was also originally a product of the tired or stracca cattle that Needed to be milked after returning from the long climbs down from summer pastures. The making of Taleggio is believed to go Back to the tenth or eleventh century, with the first documents mentioning the cheese, along with grana, in the year 1200. However, until the early 1900's it was simply called 'stracchino': a name which is still used, especially in Lombardy, and Which defines not so much a specific cheese, as the large family of soft, square-shaped cheeses very popular in the region? The Rind in an intense burnished orange-brown color with several molds and the stamp indicating it is a true Taleggio. It is a Wonderfully distinctive cheese with a wide range of flavors including a meaty richness, accented with yeasty, fruity qualities And a tangy, salty bite. When ripe it should be creamy with a dry, but not cracked rind. And has a very pungent aroma.

The name of this cheese apparently derives from mascarpa, a by-product extracted from the whey left over from making Stracchino. A more colorful entomology of the name's origin is the Spanish expression "mas que bueno" ("more than good"). This fresh, 75% butter-fat traditional dairy product has been coagulated with lemon juice and allowed to drain resulting in a smooth, ultra-creamy texture and mild buttery flavor.
