I put a large chunk of fresh mozzarella into our potato ricer. I pulled the handles together and the result was fine strands of mozzarella. I was able to put them easily over the top or our pasta. It allows for the ease and application of fresh mozzarella beyond the customary cubes. It presents mozzarella in a unique form such that pizza, tartines and semi-modern outlooks on a mozzarella dish come into a playful arena.
