Dolcelatte translates into English as ‘sweet milk’ and it certainly lives up to its name. It is a smooth and creamy blue cheese with a mild tangy taste.
Made in Lombardy, in the North of Italy, the cheese is matured for 2-3 months before being sold. During this time it develops a thin rind and a slightly crumbly texture which becomes smoother as it ages. It was originally produced purely for the British market as an alternative to Gorgonzola. Its milder taste was thought to be more palatable.
It is an incredibly versatile cheese, used in sauces for pasta and risotto as well as being melted on pizza. It is delicious on its own with fresh figs and a glass of Rosé.
