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.
Mozzarella is one of the most traditional and popular Italian fresh cheeses. It has a fresh and milky flavor. Texture-wise, it is soft and spongy. Mozzarella goes perfectly with pasta and pizza. It's the essential ingredient for Italian food.
Known as "queen of the cheese," Camembert is one of the most popular cheeses in the world. Young Camembert has a milky and sweet taste. As the cheese matures it forms a smooth, runny interior and a white bloomy rind that is typical to Camembert cheese. It has a rich, buttery flavor.
Burrata was originally produced in Puglia, a region in Southern Italy. Burrata's outer shell is a curd of mozzarella while the inside contains a mixture of curd and fresh cream. As it has an extremely short expiration period because of the use of fresh cream, it is known to be very difficult to get even in Italy.
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.
String cheese is peelable and when peeled, it becomes a form of strings or strips making it extremely popular with kids. The texture is chewy, firm and stringy.

"I was very impressed by the quality of cheeses of Pizza 4P's. After tasting some of their products, we immediately switched from the imported cheeses to theirs. It must be very difficult to create cheeses like this from scratch in Vietnam. It's simply admirable," says Mr. Sakal, an Executive Chef of Sofitel Plaza Saigon.
Currently, homemade cheeses of Pizza 4P's have been used not only in its own restaurant, but also in 5-star hotels and restaurants in Ho Chi Minh, Da Nang, Nha Trang, Hanoi, and others.
