The homemade stracciatella is a simple and genuine recipe, it literally smells like home, like many products of our tradition . Specifically, stracciatella is a typical fresh stretched curd cheese that is frayed, or better said, "shredded" by hand and then worked with cream.

It is typical of some Italian regions, in particular Puglia, Molise and Basilicata and its characteristic is precisely that of being creamier than the classic mozzarella. It has a delicate flavor, all thanks to the ingredients used in the basic preparation. Of course, the Apulian stracciatella is impossible to replicate down to the smallest original detail , but this simple and quick recipe really deserves to be taken into consideration. Here's how to proceed!

Preparation of homemade stracciatella

  1. To prepare the homemade mozzarella stracciatella, take the mozzarella, drain it from the preservation liquid and fray it with your hands trying to obtain small pieces that are not too large.
  2. Pour the fresh cream into a glass bowl, season with salt and beat for a few moments with a fork.
  3. Add the mozzarella, mix well, cover with cling film and leave to rest in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours . In the same way you can also prepare the homemade buffalo stracciatella, just use the buffalo mozzarella instead of the classic one.
  4. After the indicated resting time, serve your stracciatella with fresh vegetables, on toast or as you prefer.


The stracciatella prepared in this way can be stored in a well-sealed refrigerator in an airtight container. We advise you to consume it within 1-2 days of preparation.
