For all of you who still don't know what kind of cheese Mozzarella is, here's a brief description that will not offer you the incredible taste and softness of this premium Italian cheese but will give you an idea of what the fuss is all about:
Mozzarella di Bufala
Mozzarella from buffalo cow's milk made by Mauri is rigorously made with whole fat buffalo cow's milk, rennet, salt and naturally obtained milk whey. The result is a typically Italian, ready-to-serve soft cheese. It has a pleasantly acid flavour with a hint of musk and a sweet scent of fermented milk. It is pearly white in colour, has a smooth, shiny surface and a slightly elastic consistency.
Mozzarella classica (vaccina)
The unmistakable taste of mozzarella from cow's milk is exalted by the quality of the milk used and the strict manufacturing process adopted by Mauri. Mozzarella from cow's milk made by Mauri is rich in milk enzymes and is the classic Italian soft cheese, with a firm yet elastic consistency and a milky white colour. It has a sweet, aromatic and slightly acid flavour and the scent of fresh cheese.
Also, we have just added 2 new fresh cheeses to our range:
Fioroni di capra (with chillies)
Fioroni di Capra are soft fresh cheeses, white right through to their soft crust, with an umistakable delicate taste. Made from pasteurised goat’s milk, they have a less salty taste than Caprì. Cylindrical in shape, they come in separate portions wrapped in paper and weighing on average 45 grams.
Capri' di capra
Fresh soft spreadable cheese, white right through to its soft crust and with an unmistakable delicate taste. Caprì di capra are made exclusively from full-fat goat’s milk. They should be eaten fresh to fully appreciate their exclusive delicateness. Caprì cheeses are packaged in portions weighing on average 80 grams.
