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 now made with cow’s milk 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.

"The large balls of bocconcini are the best to tear up and eat just like that or in salads with bread on the side. So good! Good balance of salt and mild flavour!"
