Our story begins back in 1962...
Biagio Bongiovanni is the name behind Nonna Sofia. Biagio immigrated to Australia from Italy as a young teenager in the 1960s with his family. He did not grow up in a cheese making family and neither did his family own a farm back in Italy but he remembers very vividly a time, when at the age of five or six he used to watch his neighbour, a shepherd, in the small village of Sortino, making cheese in the front room of his house. He still remembers the small room black with smoke and his neighbour’s arms pushing the curds in the hoop. His neighbour used to make fresh ricotta and that was when he believes the taste and the desire to make the best and the lightest and creamiest ricotta possible stuck in his mind.
