Mozzarella: Where does Mozza get theirs?
Does anyone know where the Mozzas get their Mozzarella from? I LOVED the mozzarella when I was there and would like to track some down for myself. Or... perhaps someone knows of even better mozzarella and where I can get it?

re: Charles Pepper
Drove to Hawthorne to get two tubs of the Angelo & Franco mozzarella as I read great things from FOOD GPS and Tasting Table and they weren't there. Thankfully, I had a cell # from their website with me and they apologized and said they were off to the West LA Whole Foods for a demo so met them there. Tubs are 2 for $5 which is a steal!!! They sell them at their factory for $4 and all the shops listed above sell them for $8. One week sale only. They are the West LA Whole Foods until 3PM today and then going to the El Segundo one to demo there. I tasted the Ricotta and it was DIVINE!!!
I stopped by Angelo and Franco today in Hawthorne and picked up two tubs. Angelo showed me around the place, what a great guy. Just finished a little pre season caprese. Great Mozzarella! $4 for two nice sized balls, what a deal. Also at Bay Cities.
The LA Times did a feature on mozzarella this past Sunday and mentioned Mozza:
At Osteria Mozza, an L.A. restaurant with a mozzarella bar opened by chef Nancy Silverton (and company) in 2007, locally produced cow's milk mozzarella is served, along with burrata (a kind of mozzarella) flown in every Thursday from the Basilicata region of Italy.
Ahhh no wonder it was so delicious! I ordered the pizza with burrata @ Mozza and have been wondering where I could get it. I saw it at Trader Joe's last night so I snatched it up and tried to recreate the pizza. The burrata was good but definitely not as good as Mozza's flown from Italy. *sigh*
