How dairy farmers of the Amalfi coast make handmade mozzarella?

Like pizza, mozzarella is one of the most popular Italian food products in the world.

Even if it has many calories, we are used to eat the mozzarella produced industrially and we insert it in many recipes of home-made dishes, such as buffalo chicken mozzarella sticks, "mozzarella in carrozza", mozzarella balls, mozzarella sticks cooked with air fryer, etc.

In my career I have taken many tourists to attend the artisanal production of mozzarella, in one of the most beautiful places in Italy: the Amalfi coast.

Where is the Fior di Latte produced in Italy?

The "Fior di Latte" mozzarella cheese in Italy has ancient origins, and finds the best production in the regions of central-southern Italy.

Many many scholars of the history of the Italian tradition confirm that the origins of mozzarella cheese are linked to the Campania region.

The best mozzarella cheese in Italy, with a unique flavor, is for me the "Fior di Latte" from Agerola village who also recognized the protected designation of origin, better known by the acronym "PDO".

What are the Lattari mountains?

The Lattari mountains are the mountain range of the Amalfi coast called Lattari because there is abundant milk production (latte in Italian means milk), mountains rich in trails such as the Path of the Gods, one of the paths where I like to explore by walk with my customers
