Lovera's dedicated cheese crew uses the traditional double-curd technique of gorgonzola production. This method uses two different day's curds to produce a cheese that is both crumbly and smooth.

Hard and waxy and tasteless. Nothing like any Gorgonzola I've ever had. I might have accepted the hardness if it had flavor.
