Fresh Italian-style cheese, Bocconcini literally translated means “small mouthfuls”. Originating in Naples, in the Campagna region of southern Italy, Bocconcini is made from whole cow’s milk and has a soft texture with a mild flavour.
At Zara’s our domestically made “bambini” Bocconcini are sold either plain or marinated in our house made fresh herb dressing made from fresh herbs.
The key ingredient in Insalata Caprese, Bocconcini is ideal paired with bold flavours like fresh tomatoes, basil, red onion and extra virgin olive oil and is fatastico on pizza. Bambini bocconcini can be skewered with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil to make an easy appetizer.
