Specialty Cheeses- Italian Gogonzola Dolce and French Double Cream

I just discovered that one of the Whole Foods near me has a $5 or less basket full of chunks of Heaven. More specifically, smaller cuts of cheese.

I picked up a Gorgonzola “Dolce,” not knowing that they even exist. Sini Fulvi brand, to be exact. Wow, delicious! Creamy but with the little crystals of a more aged cheese, not too strong… I guess that would be the “dolce” part of the variety. Just enough veining to give it the best taste. Loved it, and Sini Fulvi Gorgonzola Dolce is in my favorites column now.

The second cheese is a French Double Cream, kind of like a brie but without the characteristic brie flavor that The Husband can’t stand. This brand “Fromager d’Affinois Guilloteau,” too, was delish. So very mild, extra creamy with a very light, fresh flavor. It paired really well with my Pinot Grigio on this (almost) summer evening.

Finding new things to try this year has turned out to be a delicious and rewarding idea this evening.
