Mozzarella Bites in Fresh Cream
Mozzarella or Fior di Latte is a type of spun paste cheese made with cow milk. The “Pasta Filata” technique used to make mozzarella is a stretched-curd or pulled-curd process, after the paste is spun the cheese maker cuts a piece off to make mozzarella, and thus the name that derives from the verb mozzare, which means to cut.
Milk enzymes and calf rennet are added to the milk to make it curdle, and then the curd is left to rest to increase the acidity contained in it.
After the resting period the curd is immersed in boiling water and mixed vigorously to make it stretch, at that point it is cut (mozzata) to obtain the single pieces of mozzarella which are thrown in ice cold water to maintain the shape given by the cheese maker.
Not many people know about these little fior di latte (mozzarella cheese) bites or cherries “drowned” in fresh cream.
