Traditional Bocconcini

Traditional 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 made with cow’s milk in Australia and best kept in it’s own lightly salted water. The Traditional variant comes in 30g size balls.
