Mozzarella Company BiervesaMozzarella Company
Our cow's milk Biervesa cheese has an earthy, fruity flavor and a creamy, soft texture. It is bathed daily in rich ale with floral aromas and a taste of apricot during its maturing period to create a golden colored rind and is reminiscent of old world monastic European washed-rind cheeses. Washing the outside of a cheese as it ripens keeps the rind from cracking and exposing the interior. It promotes the growth of pinkish-orange Brevibacterium linens, which produces the meaty, pungent flavors. The rich, earthy Ale we use contributes to the unique flavors in our Biervesa cheese. It pairs well with Chardonnay, light red wines, port and of course beers and ales.
Our partners at Mozzarella Company are cheese making professionals using old world techniques and recipes. Your cheese is hand picked and shipped right from their cheese cave to your door. To ensure the quality of the fresh cheese during delivery, all shipments will be sent as overnight shipping.
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 factory in downtown 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 forty 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.
