History of Mozzarella Cheese
I can rarely keep Mozzarella cheese in my home. My sons eat it before I have a chance to make anything with it. They are especially fond of fresh Mozzarella. Legend has it that Mozzarella was born when cheese curds dropped into a bucket of water. Another tradition claims that in Egypt during the height of the affair between Cleopatra and Marc Antony they enjoyed cheese made from the water buffalo. As a gift to the new Caesar Augustus water buffalo were sent to Rome with instructions on how to create Mozzarella. Whatever the truth is, the fresh Mozzarella made from water buffalo milk is unique and delicious.
