Have you ever tried fresh homemade mozzarella cheese?
This morning, I cut a braid of mozzarella that we had made less than an hour earlier. I bit into a slice and my heart instantly melted as I savored the delicate flavors. I quickly snapped a picture with my phone and couldn't wait to talk about it with you.
If you have never tried homemade fresh mozzarella, I can only say that the taste is like no other. First of all, the temperature of the cheese is tepid and almost slightly warm. At first bite, you will taste the sweet, milky, goodness that sets it apart from all other mass-produced mozzarella cheese. Fresh mozzarella is tender and yet a tiny bit chewy. It melts in your mouth and when you slice it, you can see the milk pool together at the bottom of the dish.
I personally like it dipped in the salt brine because I like the contrasting taste between the salt and the sweet cream. YUM!
At Talluto's we hand make small batches of fresh mozzarella cheese several times each day. We make it fresh EVERY DAY and it is never more than a few hours old when you buy it. Cheesemaking is an art and a passion of ours. Eating fresh mozzarella is an experience that can be appreciated by all. The next time you are in to visit us, be sure to try it.
