Cooking Italian Food in Cape Coral the Farmer Joe’s Way

March 24, 2022

Take a moment and think of your favorite comfort food… Is it Italian food? Does it have cheese? A lot of our favorites have cheese and if you are cooking Italian food in Cape Coral we have good news on that topic.

What if we told you that you could bring home fresh, made-from-scratch daily mozzarella to amp up your favorite recipes (or just your Tuesday night cravings) from your favorite SWFL grocery store? Pair that with our fresh-made pasta and you’ve got the comfort foods dreams are made of. 

How It’s Made

The best cheese starts with the best milk, and Farmer Joe’s takes that seriously! (You can find out more about our commitment to ethical dairy here) Our cheese crafters break apart 21lb packages of cheese curds before boiling them in salty, hot water. They then mix them by hand to skillfully spin and manipulate the curds before shaping them into the beautiful, shiny balls of joy we know as “mozzarella.” To ensure that they keep their rounded shape, the mozzarella balls are put into a nice ice bath; the cold water also helps ensure that the cheese isn’t overly salty by the time it reaches your plate!

Watch It Happen

One of the things that make Farmer Joe’s more than your average grocery store is the chance to watch the process of your cheese and different kinds of pasta being made daily! We’ve even been experimenting with adding specialty flavor additions to our cheese, such as basil and parmesan. 

More than Cheese

Farmer Joe’s can help with a lot more than great cheese and fresh pasta. Swing by our bakery for fresh, made from scratch bread to go with your meal. Our produce department is stocked daily with everything you need for a healthy and fresh salad. If you need good wine to pair with your Italian cuisine, we can help with that too! Don’t forget the Prosciutto to finish off your meal; cut exactly as it should be on our Italian-made and imported Prosciutto slicer in-store.
