The Salzarulo family is behind the Lioni name and began its latticini tradition in over 100 years ago in the town of Lioni, Italy which is in Campania. The family moved the business to Brooklyn in 1980, building its reputation upon its fresh, whole milk mozzarella. Their products contain no additives or preservatives and are made from the freshest whole cows milk. This one pound mozzarella ball is delicately smoked over all-natural hardwood smoke chips on the premises. It is slightly moist to the touch and low-moisture, perfect for melting in pan of baked macaroni, on pizza, in risotto with chanterelle mushrooms or slicing for sandwiches.
