Scamorza is a type of cheese renowned for its distinct smoky flavour and smooth, creamy texture. It is a variant of the traditional Italian cheese called Scamorza, which is made from cow's milk and is similar to mozzarella. However, Scamorza undergoes an additional step in its production process, where it is gently smoked over natural wood chips. To produce Scamorza , the cheese is first shaped into small round balls, similar to traditional Scamorza. These balls are then allowed to mature for a short period before being smoked. The smoking process imparts a distinct smoky aroma and flavour to the cheese, which is further enhanced by its delicate and creamy interior.
- The outer layer of Scamorza is firm and golden, with occasional charred marks from the smoking process. As you slice into the cheese, you'll discover a tender and slightly elastic texture. The interior is pale white, offering a delightful contrast to the smoky exterior.
- Scamorza is a versatile cheese that can be enjoyed in various culinary applications. It is often served as a standalone appetizer or as part of a cheese platter, accompanied by cured meats, olives, and crusty bread. Its rich and savoury flavour also makes it a wonderful addition to salads, pasta dishes, and pizzas, where it can be melted to create a delightful, stringy texture.
- Whether you savour it on its own or incorporate it into your favourite recipes, Scamorza Affumicata Palazzo offers a unique and delightful gustatory experience. Its smoky undertones and creamy consistency make it a favoured choice among cheese enthusiasts and those looking to add an extra layer of flavour to their culinary creations.
