Bocconcini are small balls of fresh mozzarella. ‘Bambini’ Bocconcini are 5 gram sized baby balls of bocconcini. Bocconcini 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 now made with cow’s milk and best kept in it’s own lightly salted water. As this format was invented by La Casa Del Formaggio, we have trademarked the name “Bambini” which means “baby” in Italian!
"We love the baby bocconcini in our house. The kids love them and eat them straight away right out of the tub! They love them in lunchboxes, but I love them in a tossed green salad, with some sliced pear and balsamic dressing. Yum!"
Bambini Bocconcini is perfect for bruschetta or to toss with fresh basil, tomato, olive oil, salt and pepper in a green salad.
