Casabianca Buffalo Mozzarella Campana
« on: December 12, 2007, 11:43:35 PM »
What's up fellas?

I just bought this from PennMac.com

Casabianca Buffalo Mozzarella Campana

Has anyone tried this in a home oven? Does it melt good? I also bought Polly-O fresh mozz which i know does but i dont want to use this other stuff if its not any good.

Thanks!

Oven is 550.

that cheese is amazing.  much shorter shelf life than the grande fresh, but even better in my opinion.  blows away the poly-0 fresh.

It really depends on how old it was when you got it and at what temp it has been sitting in travel.  I have used buffala up to a month from manufacture, but earlier is better.  Nothing can beat this cheese if it is less than a week old.  My suggestion would be to use it right away!  you will need to remove moisture, and although it sounds a bit gross slicing it and placing it on piles of paper towels (top and bottom) for an hour or two works best for me. You will also need to add salt to this cheese to get the right flavor.  There is a tiny bit put in during manufacturing, but nowhere near the amount that we are accustomed to with typical mozzarella that is used for pizza.

Snowdy,
            I've ordered that cheese a number of times and have been very happy with it.  Penn Mac also does a great job of packaging it with ice packs and ensuring quick delivery.  Enjoy.

I know this sounds crazy, but I have found really good buffala at costco and it is the same price as wholesale!  You can save yourself a ton of money if you get addicted to this stuff like I did.
