buffalo mozzarella


Mozzarella is a mild, white fresh cheese made by a process called pasta filata. It is often made with cow's milk but the most sought-after form is made from buffalo milk. Many of the water buffalo in Italy were slaughtered by the retreating Germans and it took some time for more buffalo to be acquired to replace them. There is a reviving interest in mozzarella di bufala as the herds increase.
