Carnevale – a festival of all things Italian

La Casa Del Formaggio took part in Carnevale over the weekend of February 6th & 7th 2016 to showcase our traditional Italian Mozzarella stretching methods.

The sessions were hosted by Gina Dal Santo, Cheese educator and food technologist with TAFE SA, and featured live stretching by Vince Salandra, who is a veteran cheesemaker and the husband our Marisa, daughter of La Casa Del Formaggio’s founders Gerardo and Rosa Cicchiello.




Large crowds gathered to learn more about the cheesemaking traditions that our founders brought to Adelaide from Italy in the late 1960’s, and to taste warm fresh Mozzarella that had been stretched just moments before!
