This Scamorza Cheese is smoked for added flavor
This Italian cheese can be used in place of mozzarella if you want to add a more flavorful cheese to a recipe.
Grilled Scamorza with vegetables makes a delicious appetizer.
Smoked Scamorza Treccione is a stretched, smoked curd cheese made from cow's milk. Treccione means "braided" in Italian, and when this version of scamorza is hung to dry, it is first braided together, retaining that unique shape. This cow's milk cheese can be used as a substitute for mozzarella in many dishes. In fact, many chefs opt to use scamorza instead of mozzarella because it melts better in baking.
Using smoked scamorza greatly enriches the flavor of a dish, as opposed to using mozzarella’s more mild flavor. Enjoy on a cheese board with fresh fruit and a sampling of cheeses from Italy. Or serve this type of cheese on a charcuterie board with your favorite cured meats.
