Grated Bufala?
« on: September 13, 2006, 10:38:10 AM »
I was looking over a pizza recipe from Mario Batali which calls for "grated fresh mozzarella di bufala". Grated? ???

I've never tried, but I'm fairly certain that my cheese grater would turn the ball into a pile of mush. Am I missing something here or is this a little joke on us by Molto Mario?

It's weird. I've been to Mario's restaurant Babbo in NYC and it's one of the very best meals I've ever had. Yet I can never get any of his recipes to work out.

I don't know about dry mozzarella di bufula but I got some cheese from an italian deli that was imported from italy.  I forget the name of it but it was a dry cheese made from bufallo's milk.  It was a great compliment when mixed in with Typical Fresh Mozzarella.  I mixed it with some Buffalo Mozzarella and it wasn't as good.  It crisped on top of the melted Buffalo Mozzarella where as it fused with the normal Mozzarella.  I'll have to buy some more so I can get the name.

Yes, that will work.
