Mozzarella di Bufala

Without a doubt, Mozzarella di Bufala is Europe’s favourite cheese and is renowned as one of the great cheeses of the world - yet another culinary innovation for which the world is indebted to Italy. In countries where this artisan cheese is so popular, it is often referred to as 'The Queen Of Mediterranean Cuisine', 'White Gold' or 'The Pearl Of The Table'.

Many people are not aware that Mozzarella di Bufala, is mozzarella made using the milk (100%) of the domestic water buffalo. Most of those who have travelled or lived in the UK or Europe will have either seen this product labelled ‘Mozzarella di Bufala’ in supermarket stores or would have sampled this Italian delicacy themselves. Those who have yet to travel have most likely never had the opportunity to enjoy this exquisitely delicate, porcelain white, stringy and complexly flavoured cheese.

Authentic buffalo mozzarella is extremely difficult to obtain, as there are only a handful of buffalo mozzarella producers outside of Italy. In South Africa, any 'fresh' mozzarella you buy, or that features on restaurant menu's, is almost certainly going to be made from cow's milk and is therefore actually the less superior 'Fior di Latte'. Buffalo mozzarella is in a league of it's own and is prized as the best in terms of flavour and quality. It should not be confused with the less acclaimed cow’s milk mozzarella (fior di latte) that is mass produced and widely available.

Considering this speciality cheese is highly protected and strictly regulated, paired with the fact that it is a fresh cheese with a short shelf life, importing Buffalo Mozzarella, from Southern Italy to South Africa has not been viable in the past. Now that South Africa has it's very own well-established domestic buffalo farm Italy’s signature Mozzarella di Bufala now consistently available here in KZN for the first time in history.
