I need help locating a cheese
Where do you find a quality Gorgonzola such as is served at Bradley Ogden's or used to be served (maybe still is but I haven't been there for awhile) at some of the Harrah's steakhouses.

The grocery store, even the deli gorgonzolas, are not even close to the same quality.

Anyone have a suggestion?

2. I suggest a good Italian Deli.
I don't know much about gorgonzola, but my son works in Sicily and comes home usually once a year at Christmas time. He always brings a big chunk of parmesan. It too is VERY different from what you can buy in your local supermarket.

Most larger cities have at least one good Italian Deli.

5. Try the Argentinian Gorgonzola knockoff...

...there's a huge Italian-origin population in Argentina.

I get mine from http://www.igourmet.com . It's called San Ignacio Blue.
There's a very respectable Argentine Reggianito, too.

6. OK I may try that
Don't think I'll have much luck with my original plan to have Bradley Ogden's love child. :-)

8. i'll say it again
Zingermans Deli in Ann Arbor is a great place to buy cheese, and they do great mail order.
