Located in Dallas, Texas, the Mozzarella Company was founded by Paula Lambert in 1982. Paula’s passion for all things Italian was the inspiration for the Company’s creation, although when the company started in the early 80’s, it was somewhat ahead of its time in terms of being able to find a ready market for fresh Italian style mozzarella. However, persistence together with great products really paid off and The Mozzarella Company has grown steadily and expanded over the intervening decades. Today, still under the guidance of Paula, they produce a range of fresh and young, Italian type cheeses, as well as some aged cheeses—including these wheels of Blanca Bianca.
Blanca Bianca is Mozzarella Company’s only raw milk cheese. Aged for at least two months, the wheels are repeatedly washed with white wine, developing a faint pink rind.
Wheels of Blanca Bianca are sticky and pungent, with a surface that smells of wet wood and limburger cheese. Rind is meaty and paste is dense and fudgy, with a mouth-coating texture that yields long lasting funky, tannic and cave-y flavors. Hints of wet fur, bitter pith and grapefruit can be detected.
