Mad About Mozzarella

Did you know that mozzarella is one of the cheese world’s happiest accidents?

Mozzarella cheese is a white natural cheese that's full of light fresh flavour, and can range in texture from smooth and firm to supple and stringy.

The myth behind mozzarella was that it was first discovered when cheese curds accidentally fell into a pail of hot water in a cheese factory near Naples. What a deliciously happy accident!

Mozzarella dates back to ancient Roman times and was traditionally made from water buffalo milk, however, nowadays it’s commonly made from cow milk.

Stemming from the Italian for mozzare meaning to cut, Black Diamond Mozzarella is perfect for accents and additions to cut into meals.
