A true speciality of the Sorrento area is doubtless the mozzarella cheese. Used in the recipes of most of our specialities such as gnocchi alla sorrentina, the pizza and the cannelloni, the mozzarella is considered one of the most important ingredient of our cuisine.
The ancient recipe of the mozzarella teaches us that this traditional cheese was originally made out of buffalo milk and only later ,due to its popularity, increasing year by year, the farmers started to produce mozzarella out of cow’s milk as well.
Sorrento Luxury Villas fairly recommend to all our guests to spend a couple of hours in a cheese factory for a “mozzarella cheese guided tour”; experts in the sector will show you how to produce our cheese together with all its varieties and will give you, of course, the opportunity of tasting not only the classical mozzarella but also the “Treccia sorrentina”, the “Caciocavallo”, the “Provolone del Monaco”, “Ricotta cheese” and so on......
Our “mozzarella experts” will explain step by step how to come to a finish product and will involve you in the production, if you wish!
