mozzarella di bufala
real quick one.
the italian goddess letizia dazzled us with one of her "light" salads the other night- -
- grilled eggplant
- jambon cru
- fresh basil
- cherry tomatoes and....
- mozzarella di bufala
(and just a very generous drizzle of olive oil)
when we were at the supermarket buying the ingredients for the salad, i was all ready to go with the cheap mozzarella, ya know the one i usually get.. and she was like, no! bufala is much much tastier. and i was a little skeptic that this buffalo mozzarella that was about 3 times the price of the other was going to be better than the normal one. so we got both. to test.
and ya know what ?? the mozzarella di bufala was not 3 times better than the normal one.
it was 10 times better!!!!!!!
and apparently it really does come from the milk of a water buffalo.
i'm not sure how i feel about that. i'm just not going to think about it.
and i'm just super excited about the salad i'm going to eat tomorrow (yup, i already bought me some buffalo mozzarella and roquette to replicate the salad. hehehe).
