Tips from Chefs to Chefs
01. Due to its short maturing time, Mozzarella is a fresh tasting type of cheese. It is produced by kneading and subsequent brewing and then spun thus gaining its characteristic fibrous texture.
02. Genuine Cheese is a good source of protein and can be used in vegetarian dishes.
03. You will get a better result with the tomatoes if you confit them at a low temperature (70°C will be perfect) and more time, like 20 minutes.
