Fromage of the Day, 10.07.11: Gorgonzola Cremificato

Fromage of the Day, 10.07.11:  Gorgonzola Cremificato.  Super dense and creamy as well as gently earthy and peppery, this Italian cow’s milk blue is a great introduction to top shelf blue cheeses for people who are daunted by blue cheese in general.  Anyone who thinks Cambazola or(gasp!) Saga Blue are real cheeses will be converted by the Cremificato; it’s a Gorgonzola Dolce infused with heavy cream.  It pairs well with your favorite not even remotely oaky Chardonnay, a Gavroche Red, or a dry cider.  If it was phase of PJ Harvey’s repertoire, it’s her duets with Thom Yorke, an elegant veneer underpinned by bristling fury.  These are The Joy of Cheese October Events; they resume October 18th at Clerkenwell.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
