Paesenella Traditional Bocconcini Cheese
What is Bocconcini Cheese?
Aptly named, Bocconcini means ‘small mouthfuls’ in Italian and they are basically tiny mozzarella cheeses that have been molded into their now distinct egg-like shape. Originally from Naples, this type of cheese was initially made using exclusively the milk of water buffalo.
However, all the while employing the traditional Italian technique of using a higher moisture content when compared to other cheeses in the Mozzarella family. Similar to other mozzarella, Bocconcini takes on a rindless, off-white appearance and has a semi-soft texture that just melts in your mouth.
