Made in Italy: Gorgonzola
Meet the Costa Family


Thursday, February 11, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT via Zoom 
Conversation will be in English

Only 29 dairies all over the world can make the king of blue cheese: Gorgonzola. Learn how the Gorgonzola cheese is made from the family that has been crafting it for over 100 years: the Costa family.

Founded in 1919 by the far-sighted Mario Costa, the small diary perfected  a sweet and creamy "dolce" Gorgonzola, that was awarded the highest honor at the Mostra Casearia in Milan in 1924. 

Today, Costa remains a family-owned and operated company, the torch of century-old traditions and passion is carried by the fourth generation, Davide and Federica Fileppo, in a new state-of-the-art dairy in the province of Novara in Piedmont, Italy.

Online Event - Registration is required
