Did you know that from July to the end of August is the very best time for enjoying Buffalo Mozzarella?
During these months in Campania the weather is at it’s warmest, the grass and herbs at their sweetest and water buffalo are happiest. Naturally this produces the tastiest cheese. Rossopomodoro transport their fresh buffalo mozzarella twice weekly direct from Campania and it goes from production to plate in 24 hours bringing London the tastiest and freshest mozzarella possible.
To celebrate these two special months Rossopomodoro have introduced two special sizes (in addition to the permanent menu items). These larger sizes also benefit further in taste due to retaining freshness.
1. The Mozzarellona : a huge 1kg serving parties of 6-10 people - £40
2. The Trecciona (plaited, image below): a giant 3kg serving parties of 20-30 people - £120 (one week advance pre-order required)
Both are served with tomato bruschetta, grilled vegetables and prosciutto di Parma.
Nino Lombardi, Mozzarella Producer, Bellopede E Goglino
"This is the best time to mozzarella as grazing animals eat the sweetest grass and fresh herbs that grow wild, this imparts flavour to the milk giving it characteristics and unique aromas. Climate of Naples is perfect for the animals and it is in these months when the Water Buffalos are content. Further north it gets too cold, east too dry and south too hot.Distribution is also a key element as buffalo mozzarella should be eaten after around a day from production. All factors combined provides a true reason to celebrate this wonderful product."
