One of the gastronomic symbols of Campania, known throughout the world as a tasty Italian excellence. The buffalo mozzarella is a product of ancient history, the protagonist of the tables of kings and aristocrats from Roman times.
Historical sources attribute to them the introduction of the buffaloes in Campania, where they found a favourable habitat in the marshes of Paestum in the Sele plain. Others postpone their arrival to the Norman period. In medieval documents appeared for the first time the term "mozzarella" around the twelfth century A.D. where the monks of the monastery of San Lorenzo in Capua were accustomed to offer pilgrims a cheese called 'clipping'. From 1300 onwards, these products began to crowd the market stalls while remaining within the local, because being soft cheeses they were not suitable for transport over long distances.
Mozzarella is so named for the processing method, which is its unique feature. Once the stringy pulp is obtained with buffalo milk, rennet and a number of specific steps it reaches the "mozzatura" (cut off). The process, still made by hand, requires the operator cutting off with the thumb and forefinger the stringy pulp of 2-3 kg creating the canonical forms of 250g or 500g. Even the braid is made by hand, starting from the stringy pulp.
