Mozzarella

Mozzarella

Every day, Eataly makes fresh mozzarella (and, on special occasions, its creamy sister burrata) by hand right in front of our guests. Visit our mozzarella corner, enjoy the same fresh cheese in our restaurants, and then take some home with you!

MAKE THE CURD WITH LOCAL MILK

Eataly’s fresh curd is made every day with whole milk from local dairies. Our resident mozzarella makers start their days at 7 a.m. to begin production for our restaurants and our 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. The remainder of the fresh mozzarella is displayed inches from where it is made.
