Other Information

''I started farming Laverstoke to produce the best tasting, healthiest food, without compromise, for my family & myself.

We researched mozzarella for two years, visiting Italian mozzarella producers. Strangely, the mozzarella I experienced there did not resemble mozzarella I had eaten in the UK.

I discoevered that in Italy for the first three days after mozzarella is made, they eat it naturally - just cut in half & eaten with their fingers at room temperature. The wonderful burst of freshness, aroma & taste hits you whilst the fresh milk oozes out! Only after four days do they eat it with tomato, fresh basil, olive oil....

This prompted me to invest in the best equipment to make mozzarella. We trained in Italy in the craftsmanship of artisanal mozzarella. Guided by one of the top Italian Mozzarella specialists, we produce mozzarella at Laverstoke using milk from our 1,600 plus water buffalo herd. It is very exciting that we can make a mozzarella in the UK that rivals the best in Italy. My aim is to export LAVERSTOKE MOZZARELLA to Italy!!!!''

let down HUGE

Firstly I'm italian and from the mozzarella country at that. So I do really really know what I'm talking about. The texture is all wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. Mozzarella is meant to be smooth a bit "elastic". It's no supposed to crumble under the fingers when getting out of the packet or slicing. Sadly it is comparable to the rubbish sold as mozzarella here by companies like Galbani. They clearly have got a long way to go with the process. In Italy we use older and inferior mozzarella to cook with. I'm sorry for all the people who have never tasted the real deal. This is not it. But for the flavour is good it's balanced not too strong or salty and clearly the milk is decent quality. I cannot expect The pastures to be the same as in Southern Italy but this has not spoilt the peculiar taste of buffalo dairies. But Laverstock oh please please send someone to Italy to learn how to stretch and knead the curd mass!!! I was really expecting more :(

Very good

I have bought this regularly for years and my family have always enjoyed it. But now I have found out there is an unpasteurised version I have switched due to the health benefits - hence why I've knocked off one star.

OK, but unpasteurised version is better

Bought one pasteurised and one unpasteurised to compare at the same time...the pasteurised was unappealing & mushy on the outside, but the pasteurised held it's form and had a much better flavour and texture. It was OK, and on a previous occasion I have had a better pack of Laverstoke pasteurised than this one. However, I still say try the unpasteurised for flavour...the whole family agreed.

absolutely delicious

I will definitely buy this mozzarella from now on. Both taste and texture are spot on, it's delicious without being too strong or overly creamy. Really pleased I tried this. A hundred miles away from standard dry mozzarella, this is the real thing - soft and creamy without being too wet

Favourite Mozarella

This is a really beautiful fresh mozzarella. If you think it's bland/tasteless then you don't know how mozzarella is supposed to taste. Love it best on its own
