Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP

Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP

The authentic and highest quality Mozzarella di Bufala made exclusively from the rich milk of domestic Italian water buffalo in the pristine pasturelands of Southern Campania. “The queen of the Mediterranean cuisine", also called "the pearl of the table", Mozzarella di Bufala Campana is a unique fresh cheese with a delicate characteristic taste. Soft to the touch, it releases a white milky fluid when cut.

Burrata Pugliese

Burrata is a fresh cheese best described as an outer shell of mozzarella stuffed with a mixture of shredded mozzarella and cream. Cut it open and a thick “cream” runs out. A true delicacy, our Burrata is hand produced from fresh milk in Puglia, the “heel” of Italy, where it was invented around 1900.
