The one thing Paula Lambert missed about living in Italy was fresh mozzarella, so she started the Mozzarella Company in 1982. Today, her award-winning cheeses—ricotta, Blanca Bianca, chile cacciota, mascarpone torte, Deep Ellum Blue, fresh Texas goat cheese, among many others—can be found around the country in cheese shops, hotels, supermarkets, and restaurants. Want to learn how to make your own mozzarella or ricotta? Then take a cheese tour and class. And, yes, you can go straight to the source and buy cheese direct from the factory.
