  • About

Hot, crisp-fried mozzarella encased in egg-soaked bread and flavoured with anchovies, oregano and tomatoes - a delicious afternoon snack or first course. Although this dish is originally from Campania, it is very popular all over Italy. Traditionally the best mozzarella comes from Campania, although excellent varieties are also made in the Abruzzi and the Lazio. Sadly, buffalo mozzarella, with which the dish was originally made, is becoming more and more rare and is very expensive.
