Cheese maker George Crave’s Marinated Fresh Mozzarella—Ciliegine earned a score of 99.65 from the panel of 40 experts from 17 countries and 10 U.S. states who were judging the event. More than 2,500 entries competed for honors in the 29th Biennial World Championship Cheese Contest.
This year’s award marks the fifth time that Marinated Fresh Mozzarella—Ciliegine has been singled out for honors. The word ciliegine means little cherries in Italian, and true to the name, Marinated Fresh Mozzarella—Ciliegine are cherry-sized fresh mozzarella balls. They’re marinated in an olive oil/canola oil blend with the Crave Brothers’ own special seasoning. The cheese is ideal for serving in salads such as Marinated Herb Tomato Salad, as well as pastas, pizzas and appetizers.
