Mozzarella Mamamia! is a semi-soft cheese made with partly skimmed, pasteurized milk—perfect for a quick gratin! It is available in slices for you to melt on your barbecued burgers or to confection grilled cheese sandwiches. Go for the grated option for where it really counts: lasagna, pizza and gratins. Or pick the brick format to cut cheese cubes, triangles and rectangles. It’s practical, easy and such a treat!
The cheese maker crafts humorous names for its cheeses. The Italian expression Mamamia! comes from mia mamma, meaning “my mother.” The expression is used to express surprise in the same way as “My God!” Mozzarella Mamamia will surprise you when melted, because it strings out almost indefinitely. In fact, the label says “Mamamia! Ça s’étire sans bon sens” (Mamamia! It’s crazy stretchy).
Mozzarella Mamamia! is available from the cheese maker and at several grocery stores in the Cantons-de-l'Est, Chaudière-Appalaches, Montérégie and Centre-du-Québec regions.
