Murray's Smoked Mozzarella
MORE GRILLING | GIFTS & ENTERTAINING
The Lioni family has been perfecting their whole cows' milk mozz for generations - it's delicate and moist with a clean milky flavor. The cheese is made nearby in Jersey with milk from a herd in upstate NY, then transformed into the most perfect antipasto ever. They take it a step further here with a heady treatment of hickory and cherry wood-smoke. Hand rolled into pinwheels layered with prosciutto, it's ready to slap down for your guests alongside marinated artichoke hearts and a carafe of Chianti. Salty, sweet, bravo!
