    I lived in Naples, Italy for two years, and I developed a taste for the local mozzarella cheese, which was made from buffalo milk, which gave it a very unique taste of its own.

      Oh yes, mozzarella di bufala! Last time I met larsen, his girlfriend Anna offered us some mozzarella di bufala with lambrusco gelatine... There were also dree, drad, MrEgo, pivari, TheHobbit, and Mattia Barbon. You can see us here :)

      Ciao, Valerio

    A couple weeks ago I made a recipe that called for Fontana cheese. All I could find at the store was Fontinella. I used it and it tasted fine, but as a Fontina cheese lover, would you happen to know the difference between Fontana, Fontina and Fontinella?
