I know it’s really hip and cool to be an independent artisanal food producer these days. I’m not discounting the current movement, I’m just saying that for some of us it’s been going on all along. Paula Lambert started her little cheese factory in Deep Ellum in 1982 and before you could say farm-to-table-eat-drink-local-at-a-long-table-with-ecO-friendly-utensils-and-Matt-McCallister-is-my-best-friend four times it’s 2012. Her little company now produces an incredible variety of over 30 cheeses that are shipped all over the world. And Little Miss Paula? Does she sit back her tuffet counting her curds and whey? No way. She still sets up her demo tables at local markets and passes out samples to customers old and new.
To celebrate her achievement, the Mozzarella Company will offer a 30% discount on all retail cheeses purchased at their little storefront on Elm Street in Deep Ellum. This 30th anniversary celebration and discount offer will last for 30 days, beginning June 30. Congratulations to Paula and her fine dedicated staff.
