Genoa, 19 February 2016 – At
the end of 2016 Costa ships (www.costacruise.com)
will begin proposing, for the first time in the world, a great innovative idea linked
to great Italian gastronomic traditions: the first gourmet bars dedicated
exclusively to buffalo mozzarella.

to a machine supplied by an Italian
company that specialises in manufacturing systems for the dairy milk

on some ships, begins with buffalo milk
curd from the plain of temples in Paestum (Salerno).

directly on board, along with a wide assortment
of cold cuts and other high-quality Italian specialities. In addition to the
classic buffalo mozzarella, burrata and stracciatella as well as the
traditional fiordilatte will also be

special, handmade pizza. In fact, they will be the first and only pizzas offered on a
cruise ship to be prepared with mozzarella made on the spot and with dough based on natural yeast, which is already
being used in Costa pizzerias thanks to collaboration with the University of
Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo.
new gourmet bar dedicated to buffalo mozzarella will become operational at the
end of 2016 on the Costa Diadema, the fleet's flagship, and then on all the
other vessels in the fleet during the following year.
great new idea will further enhance the gastronomic selection offered by Costa
Cruises that's based on the best of Italian tradition. The restaurants of the
Costa ships propose Italian regional menus as well as a special menu created by
the great chef Bruno Barbieri. On board guests will find the Amarillo ice-cream
parlour, with Agrimontana handmade ice cream, and special burgers made with
very high quality Fasson meat that's 100% Italian. Other distinctive aspects of
what Costa offers its guests include partnerships with great brands of Italian
excellence, such as Barilla, Illy, Ferrari spumante and Campari, and its collaborative
efforts with the maître chocolatier Guido Gobino and the maître pâtissier
chocolatier Luigi Biasetto.
