Welcome to MozzarellaShop!
If you landed here, probably you are familiar with the term 'mozzarella'. If you are not, here is the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition:
- Function: noun
- Etymology: Italian, diminutive of mozza, a kind of cheese, from mozzare to cut off, from mozzo cut off, docked, from Vulgar Latin *mutius, alteration of Latin mutilus.
A fresh, textured cheese with a porcelain-white colour, it has an extremely thin rind and delicate taste.
When cut, it produces a white watery fluid with the aroma of milk enzymes.
Apart from its typical round shape, it is also produced in small bite-sized shapes (Bocconcini) and plaits (Trecce).
The peculiarity of this cheese is entirely due to the technology used in its traditional preparation.
It is produced exclusively from whole buffalo milk and, after drawing and moulding, may also be smoked, but only using natural traditional procedures.
Buon Appetito !
