Stephan and Paula

Good friends Stephan Pyles and Paula Lambert in the 80’s and today

Cheesemonger Paula Lambert, Dallas’ divine lady of hospitality, and celebrated owner of The Mozzarella Company is our guest on this week’s “Wining and Dining with Jim White” on VOKALnow.com.  After more than three decades, her “little factory that could” still produces creamy, delicious mozzarella cheese (and other types too), made by hand in the old world style Paula learned from masters in Italy.  In today’s episode, hear stories about how she turned her little Deep Ellum business into the go to supplier for the celebrity chefs who created Southwest Cuisine, and how they helped her decide what flavors to use.  Humor and charm are part and parcel of Paula’s personality.  Find out how she used her powers of persuasion to avert an urban landscaping plan that would have chopped down a beloved tree outside her business. Paula also takes us along on her latest adventure:  Conducting culinary journeys to Italy, and tells you how you can join her.  Enjoy a delicious conversation with Paula Lambert, on the podcast devoted to introducing you to the people who make the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all our episodes on VOKAL or iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!

That’s amore!

 

Julian Barsotti is a bustle of energy and passion.  Just the qualities the talented young chef, restaurant owner and father of three requires to keep all his spinning plates (or hand made dough) airborne.  His effervescent and wildly popular Nonna is celebrating 10 years winning hearts and appetites.  Carbone’s and Sprezza are tantalizing Italian food lovers with different flavor profiles, and he’s about to open an “old school” New York inspired “red sauce joint” named Fachini in Highland Park Village as part of a very creative partnership with Nick Badovinus.   Dig in.  The conversation with “Jules” is fun.  Buon appetito!   “Wining and Dining with Jim White” is the podcast devoted to introducing you to the people who create the eats and drinks you love.  Catch all of our episodes on VOKALnow.com and on iTunes.  And, remember.  If anybody asks you what you’re making for dinner…tell ’em reservations!
