Scamorza is a pasta filata (spun cow's milk) cheese from Italy. Pear shaped, it is made the same way as mozzarella. This cheese is aged for a couple of days; has a chewy, stringy texture and is drier than mozzarella.
The smoking process is totally natural and it is obtained by exposing the paste to the smoke of certified wood shavings. The result is an intense, but still delicate, taste and a tawny color. Try this with ham, mushrooms or chargrilled vegetables, or any recipe calling for smoked mozzarella.
- Made from spun cow's milk.
- We cut and wrap this, by hand, from a 4 lb braid.
