Toonsbridge Dairy has taken gold for its buffalo ricotta cheese in the Bloom all Ireland cheese awards, beating the mozzarella into 2nd place in the fresh cheese section. We are delighted as we have changed the recipe significantly over the last few months, making a much creamier product with much more flavour than last year. The mozzarella has also been transformed since we bought over Franco Picciuolo, our new head cheesemaker. He has been making buffalo mozzarella and ricotta since he was eleven and is the fourth generation in his family to work with buffalo milk.
