Mozzarella, in all its forms, is perhaps the most recognized and revered cheese the world over. While there is a wide range from the ‘cheese in a bag’ to the certified Mozzarella di Bufala DOP, Di Palo Fine Foods has been known for decades for the high quality, handmade cow’s milk mozzarella they’ve produced in their store since it opened in 1910. Previously only available to patrons of the store, we’re now elated to share this Di Palo’s staple with a national audience.
Cow’s milk mozzarella or fior di latte is made with a few simple ingredients.
So you’ve ordered some fresh mozzarella and you want to know what to do with it. Once it arrives we suggest slicing it and letting it warm to room temperature. Once the cheese moistens up you can use it for salads, drizzle it with some olive oil or pair it with some great salumi.
If you’ve got some left over it needs to go back in the fridge. Fresh mozzarella is best consumed within a few days since it is a fresh dairy product. If you notice the cheese starting to dry out, don’t worry. Use the remaining mozzarella for pizza or lasagna. This product is versatile, delicious, and most importantly, now available online!
