Where to buy good quality mozzarella curd in the Bay Area

I attended a fun, work team building event the other night at Paulding & Co in E-Ville. One of the items we made was fresh mozzarella. Terry Paulding mentioned that it is really difficult to find good mozzarella curd locally. Does anyone have any sources? I'm willing to drive south to San Jose and north to Napa. I did find a source on line from the Mozzarella Company out of TX.

  1. I thought if you were starting from scratch you needed good rich milk, rennet and citric acid. Get some Straus Milk and a good thermometer.

          I think I found mine at the Lucky's in the pudding section and the citric acid at Berkeley Bowl East.
