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.
Made from farm-fresh milk, Scamorza is a stretched-curd cheese that is smoked over intensely fragrant pecan shells before being dipped in wax. The wax coating keeps the cheese moist and locks in the smoky flavor. Scamorza is smooth, dense, and becomes creamier as it ages.
