More About Mozzarella
Mozzarella is classic soft Italian cheese, hailing from the south of Italy. It’s known as curd cheese, made using the pasta filata process. The milk is boiled and separated into curds and whey, which are drained and stretched, and then shaped by hand into that characteristic ball shape – although you’ll also find long blocks of it sometimes available. Fresh mozzarella is elastic, silky, mild, and almost sweet, and perfectly sliceable.
If you’ve heard of Mozzarella di Buffala, then you know that buffalos are somewhat involved, but probably not in the way you think. The buffalo milk come from the Water Buffalo, not related to the North American bison – which we sometimes refer to as buffalo in the United States. This is a different animal, introduced in Italy during Roman times, and hard to find in America, which makes most of the fresh mozzarella in America made from cow’s milk. Buffalo is often much more expensive and rarer than the cow’s milk version. Expect the cost of the cheese to go up if you want to buy mozzarella cheese in its buffalo version.
