Mozzarella Making by Eddy Trotta
Eddy Trotta is the owner of Trotta Foods, now based in Thornwood, and son of the founders, Orlando 'Al' and Anna Trotta. The Trottas have expanded the 'factory' as they lovingly refer to it, from its small storefront to a fully equipped facility capable of producing other homemade products such as sauces, soups, sausage, fresh mozzarella and many varities of pasta. Eddy gave us a wonderful hands-on demonstration - and taste - of how to make and enjoy fresh mozzarella.
