Gorgonzola Sauce for your Thanksgiving Turkey


Thanksgiving dinner is the best occasion to have a great time with family and friends. This year you can impress your guests with a simple and unexpected Thanksgiving idea: you can accompany the turkey with a gorgonzola sauce.

Gorgonzola is the Italian version of blue cheese: is a veined cheese, strong flavored cheese, salty and smelly, with a sweet aftertaste, known in the regions of Piedmont and Lombardy since the XV century.  There are two varieties of Gorgonzola: Gorgonzola piccante is the best choice for the strong flavors lovers and Gorgonzola Dolce, a creamy and sweetest variety, best suited to those who prefer creamy and spreadable textures.
