As soon as the Dubai Confidential team heard that authentic Italian-style cheeses were now being produced in neighboring Ajman, we piled in the car and headed straight there.
Italian Dairy Products is a new business set up and run by a team of talented Italians. They kindly invited us into their workroom and we listened in amazement as the experts explained the process and showed us the hi-tech machinery imported from Italy. The best bit, of course, was when we got to taste the cheeses…
We tried their delicate and moist Mozzarella, their mild and creamy Ricotta, and the rich and gloriously buttery Burrata (a creamy, soft, and fresh cheese only usually made in Italy, which slowly and irresistibly oozes onto the plate when cut open). We left with full tummies and satisfied taste buds – and couldn’t wait to try the unique cheeses at home, drizzled with olive oil and accompanied by tomatoes and basil leaves.
The skilled Italian experts use both their hands and machinery to ensure that the flavours remain true to the traditional style. The cheese has no added preservatives and is made from local pasteurized milk that allows for a slightly longer shelf life and makes it safe for pregnant women to enjoy too!
Tempted? The good news is that the company is taking private orders, with a minimum order value of 200 AED. We can now all impress dinner party guests by serving cherry mozzarella in salads, can feed our children a freshly-baked Margherita pizza, and can create healthy ricotta desserts with fresh cheese delivered straight to our doorsteps. Food doesn’t get much better than that…Italian Dairy Products Tel: 0652 69042
