Types of Gargonzola cheese- substitute needed

Florida Hound | Dec 26, 2010 03:55 PM

Years ago, I chanced upon a recipe somewhere in Chowhound that called for Gargonzola Dolce cheese. I could not find it locally, so on my next trip to the big city, I went to a European gourmet deli and they carried it. Now, more recently, I went back to said deli, and they don't carry it any more and it still isn't available in my small burg. (I don't make this recipe very often. ) I am throwing out a question to my Chowhound experts on the subtle taste differences among the gargonzolas. If I can't find "Gargonzola Dolce" unless I drive to the big city, 80 miles away, will just any gargonzola cheese really do OK in a pinch? If it was a "dolce," should I doctor the recipe to cheat the final product to a fauz-dolce? Much as I love puns, I gotta tell you I am feeling very blue over this whole dilemma. Thanks, from Florida Hound
