Appearance and Taste: Mozzarella di Bufala Campana PDO has a roundish shape, but other shapes are permitted (nuggets, braids, pearls, little knots, cherry, eggs). It is porcelain white in color, with extremely thin skin and smooth surface. The paste is made up of thin layers and has a slightly elastic consistency for the first 8-10 hours after production, eventually becoming softer. The flavor is delicate, with a hint of musk that is reminiscent of lactic acid fermentation.
Origins: Origins of this kind of Mozzarella are linked to the introduction of Buffalo in Italy, around the year 1000. The consumption of Buffalo’s cheese is dated back to the XVIII century when the Bourbons developed the first experimental dairy and a buffalo farm in the with stable records where every animal received a name that referenced personalities from the Court. Since 2016, the heart quarters of the Consortium is located in the Reggia of Caserta, where the Bourbons lived, as a tribute to the origin of this Mozzarella.
