ORIGINS AND CERTIFICATIONS: These 50g buffalo mozzarella DOP bits are just like our signature product, buffalo mozzarella DOP. They fly in fresh twice a week every Tuesday and Fridays, but hurry: they sell out fast! Try and taste Mozzarella di Bufala just like in Italy!
Nifeislife is unique in that we import our fresh "mozzarella di bufala" directly from a small artisan farm in Campania, the region around Naples, called La Baronia, which is a guarantee of quality, taste and control since the 1990s. The controls applied by La Baronia imply that the provenance of the milk and its transformation happen exclusively in selected geographical areas in the Caserta and Salerno provinces and in selected areas of Latium. The DOP certification has been obtained in 1996 and has been valid since, making La Baronia one of the most well-reknown producers in Italy.
PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS: Our handmade and handcut fresh buffalo mozzarella is stunningly fresh, deliciously soft, creamy and mild. Taste it once, and you'll want more of this unique cheese. Delicacy or bocconcini (meaning "small bites" in Italian) mozzarella bites are a favourite of adults and children alike.
Rich in calcium and high in protein, buffalo mozzarella is remarkably nutritious, and a firm favourite with native Italians.
HOW TO PRESERVE: No preservatives. Our Buffalo Mozzarella needs to be preserved FRESH. This is why we make sure that we receive it twice a week, in order to provide you with the highest quality of the product. In order to taste all fragrance just like real Italians do please give us a call and we can help. When ready to eat it, please sink your mozzarella in hot water (about 35°) for 10/15 minutes.
ON YOUR TABLE: "Bocconcini" make a stunning addition to insalata Caprese - mozzarella, tomato and basil salad - is irresistible with porcini mushrooms, looks and tastes great on pizza, be it the classic pizza margherita or one topped with parma ham, and is delicious in mozzarella in carrozza (the classic Italian snack of mozzarella sandwiched between two slices of bread, drizzled with olive oil and then toasted or grilled). Choose mozzarella bites for an aperitivo or a curious dish for your guests! .
WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?
Choose the 250g (2 mozzarella balls weighing 125g each) or 500g (4 balls) Buffalo Mozzarella from Campana DOP if you want a real and unique treat, just like you would find it in Italy.
The delicacy bocconcini 500g has smaller mozzarella balls each of 50g, perhaps for your antipasti or aperitivo. Choose these instead of the cow milk's ciliegine for a tastier, richer and larger size ingredient.
A treccia, instead, is a plaited real treat for those of you who are perhaps having a larger dinner party or want to enjoy a luxurious and unique "piece of art" on their table!
