Mozzarella di Bufala

There's no going back to ordinary processed Mozzarella once you've tasted Mozzarella di Bufala. This cheese is produced entirely from the milk of the European Water Buffalo obtained from a single milking early in the morning. Up until recently you needed to go to an Italian or cheese specialty store to find it, but now it can be found in Coop and other major food stores.

Recipees - Alternate slices of Mozzarella di Bufala and Tomatoes on a plate. Drizzel with truffle oil (or a combination of truffle oil and good quality olive oil), add a pinch of white pepper. Sprinkle with basil.

In the summer, at the Auberge Lion d'Or in Versoix, they serve a marvelous combination of Mozzarella di Bufala, Sliced white peaches, basil and Italian truffle oil from the owner's family farm.
