Always enjoy this time of year and sharing some of my favorite food and wine gift ideas for Christmas.
Today my guest is long time friend and Master Cheese Crafter Paula Lambert, owner and BIG cheese of Mozzarella Cheese Company in Dallas Texas.
Paula Lambert fell in love with fresh mozzarella in Italy and decided to bring the art of cheese making home to Texas. Since 1982, her tiny downtown factory in Dallas has made award-winning cheeses the old- fashioned way – by hand. Using fresh milk and the finest Texas ingredients, Paula and her staff consistently produce cheeses that grace the pages of gourmet magazines and delight the taste buds of cheese lovers across the country.
Although the Mozzarella Company now produces almost 200,000 pounds of cheese a year and more than thirty different products, including a blue cheese, butter and a torta of mascarpone layered with pecan pralines, one thing still hasn’t changed: Each and every cheese is made completely by hand.
“Our cheesemakers practice the art of cheese making to ensure that every bite exceeds your expectations. Our cheeses are all made completely by hand following centuries-old recipes, using the freshest ingredients.”
If you are looking for a great gift idea this would be a top choice. The Mozzarella Cheese Company has put together a number for special gift packages and they are all tasty. Check out some of the offers and get on the email list for future specials. www.mozzco.com
