Bill, maybe its because I have a hard time finding great cows milk mozz in southern NH, but the couple times I have spotted the mandara bufula at tj's with at leat 10-14 days left in date for me it rose to the occasion. It just melts so differently than all the other suff I end up with here, and has that twang that cows milk just doesn't maybe I got lucky, but I felt it was worth it the couple times I picked it up. Luckily, my costco just started carring the sp? garafolo again. I have yet to try it, but scott r feels it is one of the best. Price is good too...10-11 a lb. BTW Chau, just make sure you drain it appropriately, or you will end up with a soggy pie.
