Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Fresh, milky mozzarella is part of the pasta filata (meaning “spun paste” in Italian) family. Pasta filata cheeses share a common cheesemaking technique. The process involves heating the curds with very hot water and then working or stretching them into a smooth, molten mass before forming them into balls, braids, logs and other shapes.
