Mozzarella in carrozza - Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches

Mozzarella in carrozza - Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

[...] I will never forget the first time a true mozzarella in its production zone (Campania and southern Lazio). It was a revelation: a moist, soft but springy texture and a creamy taste with just a slightly tangy aftertaste (the sign of a true mozzarella di bufala, made with the milk of water buffalo). Sadly, real mozzarella does not travel well.
Mozzarella in carrozza, literally “mozzarella cheese in a carriage”, is one of the rustic glories of Neapolitan cuisine. It’s a kind of savory French toast, or a kind of grilled cheese sandwich, only fried.

Ingredients

  • Bread, preferably slightly stale, crust removed, cut into evenly shaped sliced (see Notes)
  • Mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • A bowlful of milk
  • A bowlful of flour
  • A bowlful of beaten eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • Olive or vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Lemon wedges (for garnish)

For the anchovy sauce (optional):

  • A tin or jar of anchovy fillets
  • A good pour of olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • A few sprigs of parsley, finely chopped

Hey, Bella! I’ve got Mozzarella!

Hey, Bella! I’ve got Mozzarella! | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

Today I’ll show you how to make mozzarella. Hopefully, you’ve tried to make at least one of the earlier cheeses so that you’ve some idea about creating & handling curds, clean breaks, sterilizing equipment, etc., because you’re going to need all of this experience — plus another trick or two — to make today’s cheese. I have to say, though, having a taste of freshly made mozzarella when still warm makes it all worthwhile. And, if that’s not enough, imagine making an Insalata Caprese of freshly made mozzarella with sliced tomatoes & basil, both picked moments before from your garden. Cambierà la vostra vita!

Fantastic article: read all!!
