There is this unfortunate, grand misconception that mozzarella from water buffalo milk is a creamy and tangy cheese. "I have actually heard Mario Batali use these very words on TV to acclaim the qualities of this very rarefied product. I hate to tell Mario, but a 'creamy,' 'tangy' mozzarella is a spoiled mozzarella." Arthur Schwartz says that it's best eaten the day it's made, fresh and unrefrigerated. Sounds like I need to make a trip to Italy!
