When Paula Lambert vacationed in Italy, she fell in love with fresh mozzarella cheese. In 1981, she opened a tiny factory in downtown Dallas that makes cheese by hand. Paula's Mozzarella Company uses centuries-old recipes, and produces nearly 200,000 pounds of cheese every year. Choices include mellow, mild, and tangy.
Brazos Valley Cheese
Brazos Valley Cheese calls Waco home. It uses traditional methods to create all-natural cheeses without preservatives and artificial flavors. The cheesemakers use milk from local dairies. The high butterfat content allows them to produce rich, yellow, creamy cheeses that are used by home cooks and restaurant chefs alike. Hard cheeses age in the company's underground cheese cave. This unique cave features cement block walls, and the temperature stays at a constant fifty degrees. Choices include feta, white cheddar, and smoked Gouda.
Pure Luck Farm & Dairy
When newlyweds, Danny and Sara Bolton, decided to work together, Pure Luck Farm & Dairy was born. In 1988, it was one of the state's first farms to be certified organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Pure Luck is home to 100 Alpine and Nubian goats and has earned many national awards, including one for its feta cheese. Other offerings include Anaheim red chili chevre, Sainte Maure, and Hopelessly Bleu.
Along with these local cheesemakers, Scardello also offers a selection of cheese from around the globe.
