The history of mozzarella

The term “mozzarella” comes from the Italian word “mozzare”, that is to manually cut off the stretched curd using the index finger and thumb. The term “mozzarella” dates back to the 12th century when the first historic documents testify the habits of the monks of the Monastery of San Lorenzo in Capua to offer to the pilgrims a cheese called “mozza” or “provatura” (a smoked cheese) served with a slice of bread.

Mozzarella is a soft and fresh cheese that has been produced in southern Italy from the milk of water buffalo since the ancient Romans. Because it was not made from pasteurized milk and there was no refrigeration mozzarella had a very short shelf-life and it almost never left the southern region of Italy near Naples where it was made.

“We would point out that for purists, the true mozzarella is only made with water buffalo’s milk, whereas the mozzarella made with cow’s milk is otherwise called “fior di latte” mozzarella.”
