Antiche Bonta Buffalo Mozzarella 8 oz
Out of Stock
If fresh mozzarella is the cheese you can’t wait to take home to Mom, Mozzarella di Bufala is the one you’ll feel compelled to marry on the spot.
Carefully crafted from the milk of water buffalo-- the richest milk in the cheesemaking arsenal, with more than twice as much butterfat as cow’s milk-- buffalo mozzarella is a gorgeous contradiction: at once feather-light and unmistakably rich, delicate and assertively full flavored, slightly sour, lightly gamy, buttery, grassy and tangy all at once.
Water buffalo weren’t bred for their efficiency- they give less milk than traditional dairy cow and require a skilled cheesemaking hand - but the extra effort is worth it. Cheesemakers in the Campania region of Italy stretch the rich, fatty curd into pasta filata (pulled curd) which they then wind into pillows of milky goodness.
Use it for homemade pizzas (the classic choice for a true Neopolitan), as the key ingredient in a caprese salad, or drizzled with wildflower honey or aged balsamic as a sweet-and-salty dessert.

Just the Facts
RoséWe love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.
