September Cheese Of The Month
Fresh Mozzarella, called mozzarella fresca in Italy where it originated, is an enormously popular cheese that was first made with the milk of the water buffalo. Today, most fresh mozzarella is made from pasteurized cow’s milk, which gives it its creamy white color. This cheese has a delicate, slightly elastic texture and a milky mild flavor. Because it is fresh rather than aged, it is normally packed in water and is best when consumed at room temperature within 2 or 3 days.
Suggestions: Combine slices of fresh mozzarella with sliced tomatoes, fresh basil, and olive oil for a Caprese salad, cube it into green salads, use in paninis, or to top pizzas, flatbreads, or crostini. Serve it with roasted eggplant slices, red bell peppers, and basil, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Fresh Mozzarella is also good with cured meats, melon, and grapes.
The Perfect Pair with…
Jack’s Abby Post Shift Pilsner or Thin Man Pills Mafia
Jack’s Abby Pilsner is brewed with Bavarian malt and hops. This everyday Pilsner is bright, crisp, and refreshing. We think it’s the perfect way to end the workday.
Thin Man’s Pils Mafia is a German-style Pilsner. It’s pale in color with a mild hop profile and crisp, clean mouthfeel.
