About the Mozzarella Company
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.
