Buffalo mozzarella from Lombardy. A soft-ripened stracchino-style is unbelievably rich and creamy, with a plump, custardy texture. Italian water buffalo give the richest and sweetest milk of any dairy animal, but it’s rarely used for styles other than the ever-popular Mozzarella di Bufala. It creates a milky custard that sits barely restrained inside a soft and fluffy rind, a beautiful pillow of marshmallowy delight. It bite holds in a mild, delicate milkiness within its depths, a sweetness that melts across the palate.
Serve this with an Italian bubbly for a perfectly blissful union.
