Fresh Mozzarella is a type of Pasta Filata or stretched curd, which is a delicately flavoured fresh cheese that has a texture very similar to al dente pasta. It is used to carry other flavours such as fresh herbs and extra virgin olive oil in salads. Traditionally made in Southern Italy from the milk of water buffaloes (introduced into Italy from India in the 16th century), it is made with cow’s milk in Australia and best kept in it’s own lightly salted water. This large 200g ball of fresh mozzarella comes as a single unit, in its own brine.
Fresh Mozzarella is perfect for slicing over pizzas and lasagnas for a moist, creamy melt. Fresh Mozzarella is also brilliant for slicing and layering with tomato and basil for a Caprese Salad or tearing and mixing into other salads. Flavours that go well with Fresh Mozzarella include eggplant, olives, tomato, basil, parsley, and sun-dried tomatoes.
