We first had this at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant in Cambridge – The Italian
As with the rest of his food, Jamie Oliver firmly believes in simple and good ingredients. Let’s face it, it’s harder to go wrong that way!
Here you have 2 mozzarella di Bufola balls chopped carefully in half and laid out on your chopping board (try to avoid a wooden one in this case).
Very very carefully scoop out the interior, leaving a firm ‘shell’ of mozzarella
Mix the parts you’ve scooped out with basil pesto
Fill your shells again and garnish with fresh basil
Serve as a fresh, delicious and surprisingly simple starter. Buon apetito!
