Ahh, the love of cheese. Our love of cheese began with an interest in all things fine, hand-crafted, and unique. As we discovered, the idea of simplicity and tradition laid the best foreground for absolutely delicious food. I was lucky enough to find myself employed at a specialty store where I nuzzled myself under the wing of a United States premier Cheese monger/maker. Through many grueling, yet fascinating training sessions I became the apprentice of a practice so wrought with tradition -- it consumed me. The rich, silky, sensual milkiness of true Mozzarella has not only become my passion but, the essence of my being. Come with me, take the trip, and indulge yourself. It's downright delectable.
This cheese is hand-pulled to perfection and then soaked in a salt brine for twenty minutes. The Ovoline, named for its shape and size, is a decadently delicious, creamy ball of semi-soft cheese with a mild yet pertinent salted rind. Each ovoline is approximately 3/4 lb.
Bocconcini literally means mouthful and our marinated version definitely fulfills its promise. This creamy yet, savory cheese is marinated with garlic, parsley, pepperoncino, and Greek olive oil. Also, try a new spin on an old favorite with our two other marinades: thyme with pepperoncino, or tarragon with cranberries & black peppercorns.
