7th World Pizza Championship Australia!

7th World Pizza Championship Australia!

La Casa Del Formaggio was honoured to be the sole cheese partners for the 7th World Pizza Championship Australia hosted by Pizza Revolution this week! It was such a fun competition where we got to watch some of Australia’s most talented pizza makers battle it out for the coveted prize of joining the world’s elite in the Parma Italy World Comp next year.

Our Managing Director Claude served on the judging panel and was especially looking for a nice even cheese melt with no blistering. 👌🏽

Congratulations to all who participated and well done to the winners (below)!

New Product: BURRATA!

New Product: BURRATA!

On May 1st 2018, La Casa Del Formaggio is launching Burrata into local SA Independent grocers!

Burrata

What is a burrata? It is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent cheeses you will ever come across. It is a delicate shell of fresh mozzarella that encases a decadent filling of stracciatella. Stracciatella is Italian for “a little shred” and it is exactly that: little shreds of fresh mozzarella. When combined with the rich cream, it becomes a soft milky, cheesy mixture that is perfect for soaking up with bread, or scattering over a pizza, a bed of tomatoes or a salad of roasted vegetables.

Our team has worked for a long time to perfect the recipe and the hands-on cheesemaking methods to create this product. We hope you and your family and guests will be impressed with this delicate cheese treasure!

NEW: Smooth Ricotta & Smooth Ricotta Light

NEW: Smooth Ricotta & Smooth Ricotta Light

We are excited to launch our new Smooth Ricotta & Smooth Ricotta Light in time for the warmer months ahead! They make the perfect addition to your savoury or sweet recipes.

Mix in Smooth Ricotta the next time you scramble eggs, use it as a filling in crepes or add it to your next dessert.

Smooth Ricotta Light contains 35% less fat than La Casa Del Formaggio Smooth Ricotta. Try it as a dip for fresh veggies or spread it on thick, crusty bread with some berries and a drizzle of honey.

Smooth Ricotta & Smooth Ricotta Light are the same Traditional Ricotta that we set in a basket. Instead of draining the whey, we blend it back in to create a smooth, creamy consistency. Please remember it is natural for liquid separation to occur in traditional ricotta. This can be drained, or stirred back in when using it at home – it’s up to you!

These products are available in 375g tubs from independent grocers in our home state of South Australia.

La Casa Del Formaggio MD Voices New TV Advertisement

La Casa Del Formaggio has announced that it will be commencing its new TV advertising campaign in Adelaide in October, and taking the unusual step of having the Managing Director voice the advertisement. The TV campaign will be the first in the company’s history.

“My parents came to Australia as migrants, bringing their authentic cheese traditions with them from Italy”, says Claude Cicchiello, Managing Director of La Casa Del Formaggio. “They set up a continental deli and made cheese in the kitchen to sell in the shop. The cheese making became the focus of the business and La Casa Del Formaggio was born. Today we still honour and observe those family traditions. As such, I wanted to voice the advertisement to keep everything as authentic as we could”.

The advertisement can be viewed here:

The TV campaign will commence in Adelaide in October before rolling out in Perth as well.  One of the key objectives of the campaign is to help people recognise the La Casa Del Formaggio brand as the one that many of them buy on a regular basis.

“We have a problem that if you say the name La Casa Del Formaggio, people often don’t recognise it”, says Claude Cicchiello. “Yet when you show these same people the bocconcini tub, they recognise it as the one they buy. So we need people to see the advertisement and say to themselves ‘yea, that’s the one I buy’ and to hear the name said as they see the logo”.

The campaign will run through the summer in Perth and Adelaide. Results will determine if the same campaign will follow in the eastern states.

South Australia Uniquely Dairy Video Project

South Australia Uniquely Dairy Video Project
DairySA has recently released three short films featuring all sectors of the dairy industry, throwing a spotlight on their processes and products. La Casa Del Formaggio was selected as one of the three South Australian Dairy companies featured.

 

Each film highlights key chapters of dairy. Together they tell the full story starting from one of our family farms (The McHugh Family Jersey Farm in Mt Compass), and follows their milk to our factory where it is turned into cheese, and then follows our products through to retail, restaurant and consumer markets.

 

This set of videos was designed to encourage people to buy, use and consume more SA dairy. The films celebrate the unique, quality processes that go into La Casa Del Formaggio, The Barossa Valley Cheese Co, and Golden North‘s dairy products.

 

We encourage you to celebrate our unique industry, and to view, like, share, and enjoy the SA Uniquely Dairy story!
