Gorgonzola Cheese

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.
It appears that they called it "stracchino" in days of old; nevertheless, its date of birth remains a mystery. There are some indications that may lead to an even earlier date for the manufacture of the "stracchino di Gorgonzola". The word "stracchino" itself comes from the adjective "stracco", that is to say "stanco", wich in Italian means "tired": this leads us to the transhumance of cow herds - back in Roman times - from the higher grounds on alpine pastures down to the lower - lying water - meadows in the Po Valley.
