BURRATA

ALLA PANNA

MOZZARELLA

MASCARPONE

RICOTTA

On the plate this pure, sweet, fresh cheese resembles nothing more than a ball of fresh cow's milk mozzarella. However, once cut open, a soft and creamy center, made of stracciatella and cream, slowly runs onto the plate. Traditionally, burrata would be wrapped in the flavorful blades of Apulian asfodelo, from the same plant order as the leek, which is used to indicate the freshness of the cheese. Once the leaves dried out, the cheese is past prime.

 

Fresh burrata is best served at room temperature.



 

 

 

Here at Di Stefano, we make our fresh mozzarella every day using milk from our local dairy full of happy cows 10 minutes away from our plant in Pomona, CA! This milk is also used daily to make our other fresh products. Di Stefano mozzarella has a soft, moist texture and a full milky flavor. Similar to other fresh cheeses, mozzarella is high in water content and therefore low on fat. Our cheese is produced and packaged in a prepared water solution to help the mozzarella balls retain their moisture and shape. Fresh mozzarella is perfect for a caprese salad, on top of pizza or simply drizzled with EVOO.

Mascarpone is an Italian cheese from the Lombardy region, It is a thick creamy, soft cheese which is an essential ingredient in Italian recipes like Tiramisu and cheesecakes. Thanks to our freshness and our technique, Di Stefano’s Mascarpone is very creamy and has a slight sweet taste to it, making it a chef’s favorite.

This traditional, fresh ricotta is made with cow’s milk whey. Here at Di Stefano, we make our ricotta fresh daily. You will notice that ricotta has a mildly sweet flavor, it is smoother than cottage cheese and slightly grainy. Ricotta's fresh, clean flavor makes it a perfect accompaniment to a many recipes and family style dishes. Use it in your lasagna, manicotti, cassata, calzone, pizza, and ravioli- or get creative and let us know other creative ways you've used our ricotta! Here at Di Stefano, we make our ricotta fresh daily.

STRACCIATELLA

SCAMORZA

SMOKED SCAMORZA

CACIOCAVALLO WITH FRUIT

The creamy center that makes burrata so famous and irresistible is called stracciatella. It is made by hand at our plant by shredding fresh mozzarella and mixing it with cream, creating the desired "raggy" texture you look for in authentic burrata.  Its rich, texture and flavor is simply decadent.  Stracciatella can be used in salads, placed on top of crostini or pastas. 

 

Stracciatella is also available in retail cups

Mozzarella cheese air cured and smoked to perfection with a blend of hickory chips makes for a delicious spin on pizzas and pastas.  Enjoy on a cheese plate at room temperature, or grill it on the stove for a delicious treat.

Gold Medal Winner at the 2015 California State Fair Cheese competition, this Caciocavallo

is truly one of a kind!

While it's being modeled to shape, a lemon or orange is inserted at the core.

 

While aging, the fruit will dry, passing its moisture to the cheese, giving it a delicate twist in flavor!  Perfect on cheese plates, salads, shaved on crostini bread, melted over flat bread or stirred into risotto! Best if enjoyed with your favorite white wine!

CACIOCAVALLO

Our Caciocavallo is crafted following the Italian traditional process.

This new addition to Di Stefano comes in four flavors. Traditional and Smoked are popular options as you can 

shave on pizza, salads, roast  on the barbeque, or by itself with a nice glass of red wine.
