For Italians and those who love the country’s cuisine, Frank Fiorini and Paul Campanella’s White Gold Cheese Factory is a veritable El Dorado.
When Frank Fiorini immigrated to Calgary from Rome 12 years ago, he fell in love with his new country and his new city. But he found one problem: mediocre mozzarella. Every time he made himself a Caprese salad—a simple combination of fresh tomatoes, basil leaves, olive oil and mozzarella—or ordered a pizza, he was disappointed in the cheese. It all seemed old and rubbery, nothing like the fresh artisanal mozzarella available in Rome.
