This cheese takes its name from the village of Gorgonzola, on the outskirts of Milan. Legend has it that this
cheese was made there for first time in 879 A.D.
By law and by tradition there are only two regions in Italy which are entitled to manufacture Gorgonzola cheese, and even within these regions, only some provinces are allowed to produce it.
