"What is the difference between Gorgonzola, Roquefort and blue cheese? Can they be used interchangeably in recipes?"
Roquefort and Gorgonzola are two kinds of blue cheese. Roquefort is a French sheep’s milk cheese and Gorgonzola is Italian and made from cow’s milk. Roquefort has a sharper flavor, but is not as strongly flavored as robust and aromatic Gorgonzola.
