      Here's an interesting article from the Globe on buffalo mozzarella and high levels of toxins.

        A small bank loan was all that stood between me and those tennis ball- sized imported blobs in the whey-filled bladders. Several Canadian mozza makers may still make 'em, too--an experiment that apparently wasn't overly successful. International makes on the premises.

        1. re: Kagemusha

          Nice description. I have a similar predicament, and would have devoured those blobs much more often if they were more affordable.

          Does International use buffalo milk?

            Sure, Alberta grass-fed First Nations-milked buffalo...sorry, no. International is just screamingly fresh--good enough for me. Their ricotta is often warm from the plant, too.

              In that case I'll sure venture there sometime to check out their goods. Thanks!

            I didn't realize it was from here in TO, I tried a few packaged options at Fiesta Farms and found that brand to be my go-to around here...nothing like the stainless steel bowls full sitting on the counter at Brooklyn deli's but passable...

              TO ain't Brooklyn. Still, I'll take TO anyday.

        1. Grande Cheese will have fresh mozzarella. Try the store on Orfus Rd. (off Dufferin).
