Mozzarella

Mozzarella

Every day, Eataly makes fresh mozzarella, burrata, and stracciatella by hand right in front of our guests. Visit our mozzarella lab to see the action, enjoy the same fresh cheese in our restaurants, and then take some home with you!

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE CURD

Eataly’s fresh mozzarella is made every day with curd that has been hand-picked to produce the best mozzarella available in the U.S. Our expert cheese mongers start their day in the early morning hours to begin production for our restaurants and guests.

SEPARATE THE CURD, AND ADD HOT WATER

The fresh curd is pushed through a chitarra, a guitar-shaped instrument, to separate the solids. Very hot, salted water is added, bringing the cheese to a warmer temperature.

STRETCH, SHAPE, AND SERVE

The mixture is stirred and stretched by hand to ensure that it has melted evenly and no bits of curd are left in the cheese. It is then broken off into pieces and delivered to the restaurants, which incorporate it into various dishes (think: Roman-style pizza, fresh salads, and more!). The remainder of the fresh mozzarella is displayed inches from where it is made — ready for you to pick up and bring home!
