That’s Amore Cheese
In 2004 Giorgio Linguanti arrived on the shores of Port Phillip Bay. In only four years this young Sicilian went from not speaking a word of English to opening his own cheese shop and winning an award at the Royal Melbourne Show and has won numerous awards since.
Mr. Linguanti and his team specialize in producing close to thirty different cheeses that are unique to Italy. These include varieties such as the Diavoletti, Bocconcini Leaf, Burrata, Caciocavallo, Squacquerone, and Buffalo Mozzarella.
Despite his success, Linguanti stands firm by his commitment to hand-make each cheese, the old fashion way, using the best quality ingredients and nopreservatives. In his own words: “Hygiene, good ingredients, care and love. You can’t negotiate on these four elements if quality is your ultimate goal.”
