FIOR DI LATTE MOZZARELLA
Mozzarella cheese originates from the Italian region of Campania, where it is referred to as Mozzarella di Bufala Campana. This is due to the fact that it has been made using the fresh milk of water buffalo for centuries.
However, due to the limited availability of water buffalo’s milk, a second variant of mozzarella known as Fior di Latte was created using fresh cow’s milk. Although not as flavorful and moist as the buffalo milk version, it still possesses an exceptionally delicious taste and texture.
The secret to getting that smooth texture and superb flavor of authentic mozzarella lies in the method used. In this regard, commercially produced mozzarella pales in comparison to one that has been freshly made using traditional Italian artisanal techniques.
How Fior di Latte Mozzarella is Made
The technique used to make Fior di Latte Mozzarella is eerily similar to that used in making Bocconcini, with the main difference being that Fior di Latte has lower moisture so it doesn’t release too much water when cooked, for example on lasagne or pizza, and it holds its shape when we vacuum it.
Most Italians dive in, hands first, when they receive mozzarella in their plates because it is absolutely scrumptious just as it is. That said, you are also able to enjoy mozzarella with condiments such as salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs like oregano and basil.
Some prefer to enjoy it served with fresh basil and tomatoes, or added to dishes like bruschetta, penne con olive e pomodoro fresco and of course, pizza and lasagna.
