Description:
Mozzarella di Bufala is a creamery, stretched curd cheese made from mixture of buffalo's and cow's milk in the south of Italy. It has an oval or spherical shape of various sizes and it is wet, shiny and pure white. Like most fresh cheeses, mozzarella is used to add texture rather than a specific taste to a dish. The juices oils and flavors of the other ingredients are absorbed and intensified by the mild, moist open layers of spun curd.
