Looking for Chellino Scamorza -online
« on: May 22, 2012, 07:19:38 PM »
I found a bunch of Italian grocers/deli's websites' that sell scamorza in store, but I haven't been able to find anybody selling them online.  Any suggestions?  I'm in the middle of the country so walking into a store in the Chicago area isn't an option  :-\

Coincidence, I was by the Chelino factory today. I have easy access to the cheese from a local store. Have you had it before? I believe it's 7 or $8 per pound near me and would probably cost as much or more to ship cold.

If you can't find it online I could send you some to try. I won't even mark it up. :)
I don't want to discourage you, but it's probably not worth $16 per pound.

Btw I'm basing that on the fact that it costs $8-9 for me to send a pound of pasta ( not cold)priority mail to either coast from Chicago.

I had it once a couple years back and I really liked it.  Thanks for the heads up on the shipping.  My brother lives about 10 mins from the factory so if I can't find it online, he can ship it to me, but I appreciate the offer.  I have tried a few different types of mozzarella, but the cheese on my pizza's is still pretty lackluster so I'm looking for something to give it that touch.  BTW, which store to you go to, I don't know of any stores near my brother that sell it, all I know is the factory nearby.

Valley Produce, and Caputo's. Others should as well.
