Mild, refreshing and supple, this fresh mozzarella is made with cow pasteurized milk. It has a springy and dense consistency with a light and barely discernible aroma of wholesome cream. Soft when fresh, the flavour changes once melted, becoming stringy and mellow in flavour.
Mozzarella fior di latte recipes are delicious and endless. Fresh mozzarella is perfect as an entry with freshly picked basil and tomatoes or fried, the famous mozzarella sticks. For warm dishes, try mozzarella with quinoa, mozzarella and pesto pizza or mozzarella mushroom pasta – Uhmm so good 🤤
Mauricio is an Italian living in Lisbon dedicated to producing Italy’s best cheese: mozzarella and burrata. In his production Mauricio makes fresh mozzarella with cow pasteurized cheese. Since this is a traditional mozzarella it contains no preservatives since this could dilute the taste in flavour of a longer shelf life.
Do you know how to make mozzarella? Thoroughly measuring the consistency by feel and experience, Mauricio still rely purely on intuition and knowledge when deciding if the Mozzarella is at the right stage of development.
