Bufala Mozzarella

 

Our Mozzarella di Bufala hails from Campania, Italy; home to both mozzarella and pizza galore.  We bring in weekly air-freight shipments to-order of Mozzarella di Bufala and Burrata di Bufala direct from Italy to Minnesota.  We keep foodservice Mozzarella di Bufala as well as a fantastic domestic cow’s milk burrata from the Liuzzi Angeloni in stock.

Some background on Mozzarella di Bufala…

Mozzarella di Bufula is a bit of an anomaly – somehow the richest milk (water buffalo milk has twice the fat of cow milk!) is transformed into a feather light pillow of cheese.  Water buffaloes produce less milk than dairy cows, and with their intimidating horns and larger overall physique it takes a bit more bravado to milk them.  The challenge then falls to the cheese-maker to turn a particularly unforgiving milk into a delicate fresh cheese.  The resulting cheese is porcelain white (buffalo milk doesn’t contain the butter yellow carotene found in sheep and cow milk) bright and fruity, and has just a bit of underlying wild gameyness.  The texture is rich, supple and nearly custardy.   Because the cheese is packed in water, it should be drained well before using.
