Organic Buffalo Mozzarella
You may find Laverstoke's buffalo mozzarella is firmer than the mozzarella you are accustomed to eating in the UK. This is due to the freshness. The fresher the cheese, the more elastic and springy the curd. As the cheese ages it becomes softer.
The distinguishing features of a superior fresh mozzarella are all in the taste.
- Fresh / Cheese / Mozzarella, Mascarpone & Ricotta / Mozzarella
- Organic / Fresh / Milk, Dairy & Eggs / Cheese
Keep refrigerated until ready to eat. Bring up to room temperature naturally and drain. Consume within 3 days of opening.
Prepare & Use
How should you eat it?
Consider the firmness of the mozzarella before deciding how you are going to eat it.
- If it is very firm - serve it as eaten in Italy, completely naturally - simply cut in half and eaten with your fingers! When mozzarella is really fresh, you will experience a burst of freshness, the milk will ooze out... southern Italians say that if you don't have a mess on your face, you aren't eating mozzarella! This is what fresh mozzarella is really about.
- If it is less firm it is best eaten as Insalata Caprese - with tomato, fresh basil and olive oil - a wonderful Italian antipasto (starter) - for variety you can add olives, balsamic vinegar, garlic.
And if you haven't managed to eat it whilst it was very firm - it is still lovely if you add it to your Tomato Pasta. See our website for the recipe - but in a nutshell once you are ready to serve it, tear the ball of mozzarella into chunks and add to the sauce. Tear a handful of basil leaves and add to the sauce. Turn off the heat - Pour over the pasta. Mmmh... delicious.
In many cases people with aversions to cow's milk can consume buffalo milk with no ill effect. However, anyone wishing to use buffalo milk as a prophylactic should first seek medical advice
