#8 Fresh & Healthy brand - Capriccio Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Mozzarella is a mild, cheese that is usually made with cow's milk. There are two basic types of this popular Italian cheese:
Regular, which is factory produced, and is usually used in cooking. It is also produced in low-fat and non-fat versions.
Fresh, which is usually (but not always) packed in whey, water or oil and has a softer texture and more delicate flavor. It is usually made from whole milk.
The Fresh & Healthy Capriccio Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, distributed by Best Value Kosher Food, Brooklyn, NY, is a gourmet cheese that not only tastes good, but is visually pleasing. The one we sampled, Pesto Di Genoa, is entirely garnished with a mixture of basil, sundried tomatoes, sweet red pepper and garlic. The combination of the soft, delicate flavor of the mozzarella and the garnish was delightful.
This is an all natural cheese that is ideal to use on a cheese tray. Just surround with crackers, grapes or sliced apples, crisp breads , a good glass of wine, and you have a winner.
Other kosher mozzarella products produced under the Fresh & Healthy brand are: Cappiello Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Cappiello Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Mozzarella Cheese, Garlic & Chives Mozzarella Cheese and Capriccio Tuscan Olivia Mozzarella Cheese.
It is available online at GlattMart.com.
