Sweet Gorgonzola Butter

Chef Suzanne Tracht makes this rich, indulgent compound butter with Gorgonzola dolce, the milder, sweeter, less acidic form of Gorgonzola piccante. Letting the mixture firm up in the fridge allows you to cut clean rounds; it’s the perfect accompaniment for Tracht’s prime rib eye.
