In cooking, whether at home or by the professionals, cheese is a versatile ingredient that enhances a dish’s flavour and texture, making it look more appetizing and taste better. For Malaysians who are known for their love for food especially creamy and savoury ones, cheese is becoming one of the most commonly used ingredients in cooking. Not only does it enhance the flavour of dishes, it also adds nutritional value due to its high protein and calcium content. With so many types to choose from, each one has unique qualities, offering consumers a wide selection of cheesy indulgence.
Perfect Italiano is one of the most popular brands among Malaysian homemakers. Providing a variety of culinary cheeses and ingredients made through traditional Italian cheese-making methods, you can easily add a touch of Italian flair to your meals! With Perfect Italiano, home cooks will enjoy taking their baked goods and dishes to the next level, just like how the professionals do it.
Perfect Italiano recently introduced three new products that bring “gusto perfetto” (perfect taste) to your dishes. Specially-crafted for the meals you love, the new range is made to complement your favourite pizzas, pastas or tacos, and also elevate your everyday Malaysian dishes! For added convenience, they come readily pre-shredded, ready-to-be-used whenever you desire!
Featuring a new packaging size of 150g, the smaller portion is just the right size for a single meal.
Irene Cheah, Marketing Director of Fonterra Brands Malaysia, shared that the current Perfect Italiano assortment has received very positive responses, particularly in the last two years. “In support of Fonterra’s aim to bring quality dairy products to more Malaysian homes, we have decided to expand the range offerings with these 150g packs, which are specifically designed for smaller households. Perfect Italiano is the No. 1 culinary cheese brand in Australia that is made with quality, high content of natural dairy in the country.”
“By making Perfect Italiano cheeses available in smaller 150g packs, families can now enjoy different types of cheese in various dishes on a more regular basis. As Malaysians enjoy sharing meals together and trying new recipes at home – these new Perfect Italiano cheese blend variants help home cooks add different flavours to their cooking, instantly elevating the overall taste and experience of food,” she added.
If you love your pizzas stretchy with an impressive “cheese pull”, Perfect Italiano Perfect Pizza is the one to look for. A blend of Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan gives a superior melt every time, for a perfect balance of cheesiness and stretchiness that doesn’t turn oily.
Of course, the name Perfect Pizza suggests that it is ideal for making pizza at home. But did you know it can also elevate delectable Malaysian dish like Cheesy Roti Canai Sarang Burung Pizza? Yes, who says pizza cannot be adapted to suit Malaysia’s distinct tastes!
For baked goodies topped with cheese still bubbling from the oven, Perfect Italiano Perfect Bakes is your best choice. Full-flavored Cheddar is mixed with Mozzarella for a beautiful stretch, and the addition of Parmesan gives a bite full of superior flavour. Perfect for everything baked, Perfect Bakes helps you achieve that appealing golden-brown crust.
If you would like to create something new, try the Perfect Bakes and make your own delicious, appetizing pie dish with traditional Malaysian filling like Chicken Rendang. Bake it with sliced potatoes and serve it as a pie. Your family or guests will be pleasantly surprised by the delectable one-of-a-kind dish.

A perfect blend of three quick-melting cheeses – Mozzarella, Red Cheddar and Colby – enhances the flavours of Mexican cuisine, right in your kitchen. This cheese blend is suitable for Mexican dishes like burritos, tacos, nachos, and tortillas. You can also add a local twist to it by adding it to Cheesy Ikan Bilis and Tempe Taco Bowl! That would make a cheesylicious snack to indulge at home with your friends and family!
