Smoked Scamorza Treccione (Braids)
Smoked Scamorza Treccione is a stretched, smoked, curd cheese made from cow’s milk. It get’s the name “treccione”, meaning “braided” in Italian, because when this version of scamorza is hung to dry it is first “braided” and consequently retains that shape. Smoked Scamorza can be used as a substitute for mozzarella in many dished. In fact, many chefs opt to use scamorza instead of mozzarella because it melts better in baking. Also, using smoked scamorza greatly enriches the flavor of the dish, as opposed to using mozzarella.
