Mozzarella

Fresh (fiordilatte)
Generally sold in balls of different sizes, this mozzarella has a moisture content of 60%. It is soft, mild and tastes of fresh milk. Pearls of milky whey seep out when you slice into it.

Our Fresh Mozzarella is made in smaller batches, from whole milk and has a softer, buttery texture and a delicate flavor. It’s delicious served raw with ripe, farm-fresh tomatoes or as part of an antipasto platter. It is a “stretched-cured” cheese meaning that during the manufacturing process the curd is pulled, kneaded and shaped while it is still pliable. Therefore, it absorbs the flavors and juices of the ingredients surrounding it and is perfectly designed for cooking. Mozzarella is also low in fat; therefore, it is ideal to use when dieting.

There are many ways to enjoy mozzarella. Of course, it’s a basic ingredient in some of the world’s most famous foods, namely pizza and other Italian dishes, primarily lasagne. In winter, a simple slice of the fresh, milky-tasting cheese on a piece of toast is heaven itself, while in summer, it marries beautifully with fresh tomatoes and basil leaves.
