NEAPOLITAN FOOD: MOZZARELLA DI BUFALA CAMPANA
It can seem weird to put something so common and easily purchasable as mozzarella in a list of typical local foods, but you need to try the real mozzarella di bufala campana to understand the reason. Ideally, it should be consumed within 2 hours from the production, which is quite hard outside Campania borders. In Naples, we suggest two of the most famous addresses: Minicaseificio Costanzo at via Lepanto 118 and Antica Latteria dei Fratelli Papaccioli at via San Pasquale a Chiaia 20. For those who have the chance to move outside Naples, the whole area around Salerno and Caserta is worth a visit for its many local cheese factories. In Capaccio, for example, there is Tenuta Vannulo, where the staff escorts you in an itinerary through all the phases of the production, from the stables to the dish, ending with a complete tasting of all their dairy products.
