Feta (Mozzarella Co. Goat)
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 this Mediterranean-inspired Feta.
Produced with pasteurized goat’s milk sourced from different grade “A” farms in Texas and Oklahoma, Mozzarella Company’s Goat Feta is aged for one month.
With notes of hay, grass and salt on the nose, this goat’s milk Feta has a firm, dry and crumbly texture reminiscent of Cotija. On the palate, the cheese is a bit squeaky in texture and yields a brighter flavor than its cow’s milk cousin. Flavor is tangy and citrusy with notes of orange blossom flowers.
This feta would be great in a salad or with tacos. For drink pairings, try a wheat beer or a Chenin Blanc.
