The Category Brief

Futura Foods Gorgonzola Piccante is produced in the Lombardy region of Italy to a PDO recipe. The cheese is matured for longer and is therefore stronger and more piquant. As well as having a firmer and more crumbly texture, it is savoury, tangy and extremely versatile for delivering punchy flavours.

Contestants are encouraged to explore complimentary ingredients, alternative cuisines, different carriers and application methods to elevate the cheese.
