The buffalo mozzarella has very ancient origins. In Campania, it is produced since 1100. Here, in fact, the mild climate and fertile lands have encouraged the breeding of buffaloes that produce the precious milk from which it is produced.
The etymology of the word “mozzarella” is attributed to “mozza”, from the verb “to truncate” because the final stage of the manufacturing process ends with the truncation of the curd. This cutting operation is made by index finger and thumb to give shape to the product. The term “mozza” in written form appears for the first time in XII century in a document found in the Episcopal Archive of Capua (Caserta province - Italy); the term “mozzarella” appears for the first time in 1570 in a kitchen book by Bartolomeo Scappi, one of papal court chefs.
