Blue Cheese on Wikipedia:

Gorgonzola, a veined blue cheese from Italy. For the dipping sauce, see blue cheese dressing.

Blue cheese (or bleu cheese) is a general classification of cow's milk, sheep's milk, or goat's milk cheeses that have had Penicillium cultures added so that the final product is spotted or veined throughout with blue, blue-gray or blue-green mould, and carries a distinct smell. Some blue cheeses are injected with spores before the curds form and others have spores mixed in with the curds after they form. Blue cheeses are typically aged in a temperature-controlled environment such as a cave.

In the European Union many blue cheeses such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola, and Stilton are, like wine, a protected designation of origin, meaning they can bear the name only if they have been made in a particular region in a certain country. Similarly, individual countries have protections of their own such as France's Bleu d'Auvergne Bleu de Basque Bleu de Bresse Bleu de Bryn Bleu de Gex Bleu de Laqueuille Bleu des Causses Bleu de Septmoncel Bleu du Haut-Jura Bleu du Vercors-Sassenage Blue Castello Blue Cheshire (see Cheshire) Blue Rathgore Blue Wensleydale Buttermilk Blue Buxton Blue cheese Cabrales cheese Cambozola/Blue Brie Cambridge Blue cheese Cashel Blue cheese Cheshire cheese (blue variety) Ciel de Charlevoix Clemson Blue Danablu (Danish Blue) Devon Blue Dolcelatte Dorset Blue Vinney cheese Dovedale Dunsyre Blue Edelpilz Exmoor Blue cheese
