At this year’s American Cheese Society competition, it was difficult to stand out amongst 1,742 product entries, but Lioni Latticini did exactly that. The company took home 1st place in the Flavored Cheese category for its Burrata Con Tartufo.
“We are so fortunate to be recognized among our peers by a community that encourages the highest standards of cheesemaking,” said Salvatore Salzarulo, Co-Owner and Co-Founder.
According to a press release, the Burrata Con Tartufo features some of the world’s finest Italian black truffles in a delicious creamy panna di latte and pasta filata mozzarella. The panna—which is imported from Italy—is then combined with pieces of curd called pasta filata. The black summer truffles add a rich and earthy aromatic flavor. With its pure flavor, creamy texture and delicate blend of Urbani’s imported truffles, Lioni handcrafts a burrata cheese that is both sophisticated and indulgent.
Burrata Con Tartufo has a shelf-life of 17 days from date of manufacture and is available in both retail and foodservice options.
Congratulations to Lioni Latticini on its ACS win!
