It is said that Gorgonzola has medieval origins. The legend tells of a herder who left a bowl of curdled milk; in a subsequent stop, being devoid of the necessary tools for milk processing, he added another curd to the first curd. After several days, he realized he had got a cheese with green veins that was very appetizing due to the mixture of the cold curd of the evening with the warm morning curd. Today Gorgonzola cheese is recognized as a product of excellence of the Italian tradition in all over the world.
