One of the most typical Italian products is cheese. There is an extremely large variety of Italian cheeses that can be adapted to all different tastes and recipes. Buffalo mozzarella is one of the most famous and offers numerous gastronomic possibilities.
This is a very traditional cheese made from buffalo milk, which means it contains a higher amount of proteins and lactose than cheeses made from cow's milk. Although the traditional recipe calls for buffalo milk, most mozzarellas currently found on the market are made with cow's or sheep's milk because they are cheaper and there is not enough buffalo milk to face the demand for this type of cheese.
Its name comes from the verb mozzare, which refers to the separation of the mass that occurs during processing. The cheese's name as we know it today emerged in the sixteenth century in a famous text written by Bartolomeo Scappi, chef for the papal court.
Since its creation, mozzarella has become one of the most famous and widely used gastronomic products from Italy. Fresh mozzarella cheese can be used in many dishes: in salads, with fresh tomato, as mozzarella sticks or as a delicious accompaniment to pasta and sauces.
