Giorgio Linguanti’s love of fine food began when working in a small shop in Sicily that specialised in products from the nearby Aeolian Islands. On arriving in Melbourne in 2004, with a love of food and speaking only Italian, he turned his hand to cheese making and in 2008 That’s Amore was born.
That’s Amore Cheese sources Australian milk that is transformed into a variety of artisan cheeses at Giorgio’s purpose built facility in Melbourne. Traditional recipes and methods are used and all his cheeses are Halal Certified, suitable for vegetarians and free from preservatives and artificial colours.
“The key to cheese making is love! This is true for everything you do, not just for cheese making. If you do everything with love, the results will be obvious – they’ve got to be good! This is why my company’s name, That’s Amore, means That’s Love.” – Giorgio Linguanti
Squacquerone, is one of the most popular cheeses in the Emilia Romagna region of Northern Italy. This versatile and soft fresh curd cheese has a delicately tangy flavour, reminiscent of natural yogurt. Spread on fresh crusty bread with olive oil and fresh herbs or with jam for a sweet snack. May also used in wraps or melted in pasta fillings, on pizza or in sweet dishes such as cheesecakes.
