Has anyone tried Grande "East Coast Blend"?
« on: November 02, 2007, 10:10:13 PM »
Hi - I am new to the forums and to pizza making, but I have learned a TON from all of you on the site.  I saw on Grande Cheese's website that they offer an "East Coast Blend".

According to Grande "This blend is a mix of 50% Whole Milk and 50% Part Skim Mozzarella that provides the unique flavor customers love, with no oiling off. With East Coast blend, you'll spend less time dicing and shredding cheese and have more time to build customer relationships. "

I'm not worried about customer relationships, but they are marketing this as if it's what's being used by NYC pizzerias, and it's being sold in 5 pound packs either diced or shredded.

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I have used it and it is definitely what many NY pizzerias use.  Many combine their own part skim and whole milk mozzarella, but here grande does it for you.  Those gas filled bags work great and the cheese tastes the same as blocks since there is no need for cellulose.
