While spending time in Perugia, Italy, Paula Lambert became enamored of Italian cheese, specifically fresh mozzarella. Once back home in Dallas, Texas, Lambert realized that she would be unable to get her hands or mouth on quality mozzarella unless she made it herself. Thus, twenty-four years ago, Paula Lambert's Mozzarella Company was born. Using milk from local dairies, Mozzarella Company now produces a wide variety of specialty cheeses.
These adorable bundles of fresh goat cheese are wrapped up like tiny Christmas presents in the aromatic leaves of the hoja santa, the Mexican Pepperleaf. The hoja santa (Holy Leaf) infuses the lemony cheese with refreshing tones of mint and sassafras.
