Made With “Amore”
“The key to cheese making is love. That’s true for everything you do, not just cheese. If you do it with love, the results are obvious – it’s got to be good. That’s why my company’s name That’s Amore means That’s Love,” Giorgio says.
He became a cheese maker for the love of creating almost an unlimited number of products from just one ingredient, milk. The ancient art of cheese making involves patience dedication and love.
Our artisanal cheese is handmade following only traditional Italian recipes, using milk sourced locally from Victorian farmers. To produce the best quality Italian style cheese – free from artificial colours or preservatives, it’s essential to use the best quality local milk.
Giorgio Linguanti – Maestro of Mozzarella
In 2004 Giorgio Linguanti arrived on the shores of Port Phillip Bay with a limited English vocabulary. When he first migrated to Melbourne he commenced employment in a cheese factory where his interest and passion for making cheese ignited.
After this experience, in 2008 Giorgio started his own business ‘That’s Amore Cheese’, initially producing just one product – Bocconcini leaf. He would singlehandedly manufacture the product, sell it and then hit the road to deliver it to his customers. The product was an instant success, paving the way for Giorgio to begin making other products.
Giorgio’s business grew rapidly and in April 2015, That’s Amore Cheese moved into a larger facility in Thomastown, also accommodating a beautiful retail outlet.
Thanks to his talent and skills, Giorgio Linguanti (That’s Amore Cheese) has become Australia’s ‘Maestro of Mozzarella’.
