mozzarella cheese

Mozzarella is a specialty originating from the Campania region, and which over the centuries has also become common in neighboring regions such as southern Lazio and Puglia, as well as Basilicata, with two varieties mainly produced, namely, that based on buffalo milk and the other with cow's milk. Mozzarella is eaten as an appetizer accompanied by sweet raw ham, as well as paired with tomato in the famous Caprese salad, as well as in various first and second courses, where it contributes to giving a touch of freshness.
