We Kiwis know our cheese, as dairy is a large player in our cultural identity, however, when it comes to mozzarella the Italians know a thing or two. Italian mozzarella is one of the most popular cheeses in the world! Traditionally made in Italy and eaten for centuries across Europe through generations.
Smooth and creamy, Italian made mozzarella is the perfect accompaniment to all your Italian inspired dishes.
What is the difference between cow and buffalo mozzarella?
Fior di latte – cow mozzarella is made with fresh cow milk. It has a delicate flavour and smooth texture, ideal for pizzas and pastas.
Mozzarella di Buffala – buffalo mozzarella is made with fresh buffalo milk. It has a rich flavour and creamy texture, perfect for salads, appetizers or even on its own.
In a recent consumer survey (October 2017) conducted by Big Picture with kiwi tasters, funded by the European Union within the Milk & Dairy campaign, the Italian made Ghiotti brand mozzarella performed well because it is more flavoursome and has a distinctive Italian taste.
Many Italians eat mozzarella daily and we can now bring this age-old tradition into our homes by adding a real taste of Italy to our Italian inspired meals. Ghiotti’s authentic range of delicious mozzarella brings a slice of indulgence and wanderlust to the plates of us Kiwis.
After six years of supplying New Zealand’s best restaurants with authentic Italian delicacies, the team at European Foods have made their quality Italian produce, including mozzarella, affordable and available ‘around the corner’ in local supermarkets throughout NZ. The Ghiotti brand brings European dining and sharing experiences to everyday New Zealanders in their own homes.
