An hour away from beautiful Da Lat City, there is a small farming village called Don Duong where the cheese factory of Pizza 4P's is located.
Every morning, they use freshly produced milk from their partner farms and carefully make each cheese by hand.
Smoked scamorza is a popular cheese in Southern Italy. It can be substituted for a mozzarella in many dishes, but the taste is much stronger and more dominant. When it's pan-fried, it gets irresistible crust and literally melts in the mouth.
Homemade artisan cheeses from Da Lat
Pizza 4P's established their cheese factory in Da Lat in 2011 to supply fresh mozzarella cheeses to its own restaurant. At the beginning, they had to start everything from scratch- from finding a dairy farm to designing the product package. Today, they have more than 20 professional staffs and produce more than 400 cheeses every day.
Currently, there are two Japanese cheesemakers working at their factory. Mr. Konuki is the founder of the factory and is in charge of the daily operation. Mr. Kubota studied cheese making in France for 6 years and received a French national certificate in professional cheese making. After working at a cheese factory in Hokkaido, he joined Pizza 4P's and is currently engaged in new product development.
Under their strict quality control, Pizza 4P's has been producing a wide variety of homemade cheeses that includes Camembert, Mozzarella, Mimolette, and etc.
How to eat Scamorza cheese
Scamorza is nice to eat as it is, but it tastes even better when it's grilled or toasted.
Cut the scamorza cheese into 1-cm thick slices and put some flour lightly on both sides, and then pan fry it with olive oil. The outside gets crispy while the inside becomes meltingly soft. It's also nice to toast it with vegetables or bread in an oven until the surface gets golden brown.
