Toons Bridge Dairy Fresh Mozzarella


Toons Bridge Dairy Fresh Mozzarella

Made in our Dairy at Toonsbridge, Macroom, West Cork. 

Approx 145g per Mozzarella ball. 

We make our Mozzarella with fresh raw cow's milk, supplied to us by local farms. Our cheesemaker, Franco Picciuolo, is a fourth generation Mozzarella maker from Naples. Franco and the team employ traditional Neapolitan methods including the use of whey starter, raw milk and the pasta filata technique wich involves stretching and manipulating the curd. Cow's milk Mozzarella is also known as Fior di Latte, which translates to "Milk Flower". Mozzarella should be eaten as fresh as possible which is why we make and ship our Mozzarella on the same day, and you will receive it within 24 hours. 

Serve our fresh Mozzarella with plump tomatoes, basil leaves and a drizzle of Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin olive oil. 

Fridge Life: 7 - 10 days. We pride ourselves on being able to ship Mozzarella within 24 hours or production because it always tastes best fresh. Although Mozzarella has a decent fridge life, we highly recommend eating it as freshly as possible. In Italy is is said that with every passing day, Mozzarella loses a life!
