A BIT ABOUT THE CHEESE MAKER
Marco is the Toons Bridge Dairy head cheese maker, or “casaro”. From Battipaglia, near Salerno in Campania, which is the town most synonymous with buffalo mozzarella production. Marco’s family have a long tradition of mozzarella making, including his grandfather being the first “casaro” to use whey starter in the area in the 1930’s. Marco has won several awards for his mozzarella making, including European Multi Champion 2013 and 2015. He is expert in both the Campania whey starter technique and also the Puglia direct acidification, His cheese repertoire includes mozzarella, scamorza, caciocavallo, ricotta, stracciatella, burrata and stracchino. Marco is equally at home using buffalo or cows milk, and has even used our sheeps milk to make mozzarella.
