How was Gorgonzola born?

Legend has it that gorgonzola was the result of a mistake: it would seem that a cheesemaker in love on his way to visit his beloved forgot a curd in the boiler overnight. The next morning the cheesemaker mixed the "forgotten" curd with the morning's processing, and thus a great classic of Italian gastronomic tradition was born: the wheels thus obtained, since the dough of the night before, which was more acidic, did not mix perfectly with the morning's dough, turned out to be full of folds and crevices, which during aging favored the development of molds inside the cheese.

When great-grandfather Luigi Guffanti began aging Gorgonzola in 1876, his genius intuition was the purchase of an abandoned silver mine in Valganna, in the province of Varese. Five generations have passed, the attention to the artisanal quality of the cheese product and the passion for careful ripening continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated to this day as one of the best ripeners in the world.
