Italian cruise line, Costa Cruises is to introduce a gourmet bar specialising in buffalo mozzarella onboard its ships towards the end of 2016.
Buffalo mozzarella will be produced on board, on the spot, like in a real dairy. Guests will be able to observe the process up close inside the gourmet bars on some ships, which begins with buffalo milk curd from the plain of temples in Paestum (Salerno).
Buffalo mozzarella will be tasted while it is still warm, since it will be produced directly on board, along with a wide assortment of cold cuts and other high-quality Italian specialities. In addition to the classic buffalo mozzarella, burrata and stracciatella as well as the traditional fiordilatte will also be served. The buffalo mozzarella produced on board will also be used in the fleet’s Pummid’oro pizzerias.
The new gourmet bar dedicated to buffalo mozzarella will become operational at the end of 2016 on board Costa Diadema, the fleet’s flagship, and then on all other vessels in the Costa fleet during the following year.
