Artist BioAbout us
The recipes for our cheeses originate from the beautiful land of Puglia, Italy.
Puglia, the region of Italy in the south east can boast of being the home of cow's milk Mozzarella (just as Campania is the home of buffalo mozzarella).
The wide availability of vegetables, fruits and fresh fish, have shaped the region's culinary traditions. Its recipes contribute largely to the popular "Mediterranean diet" based on the use of vegetables, often raw, extra virgin olive oil, wheat bread, fish and dairy products.
Puglia is a region of Italy with the highest percentage of low lying country and the region of the peninsula with the longest coastline. Its symbol is the olive tree, which dominates the landscape from North to South.
Our beautiful land is one of the more developed regions in the agro-food industry, producing olive oil, wine, vegetables, fruits, wheat and cheese (just to mention the best known and most popular products) produced by small and medium sized businesses whose strength is product quality.
Welcome! We are cheesemakers from Italy, making award winning cheeses like Mozzarella and Ricotta right here in New Zealand from locally sourced cows' milk. All our cheeses are handmade without any preservatives. We make them according to the cheese-making traditions of Puglia, Italy.
