Where to buy mozzerella curd in the bay area

Anyone? Thanks

  1. When I was looking for it five years ago, cheese shops could get it by special order but the minimum was 20 lbs.

    You might call Belfiore in Berkeley, they make mozzarella so they must have curd.

      1. I've heard that you can get Belfiore by special order at both Berkeley Bowls and Whole Foods in Oakland and Berkeley, but I haven't actually tried it yet.

        1. I wanted to chime in and say that Formaggi Di Ferrante just opened a retail store at their warehouse in Fairfield. Their curd is regarded as the best you can get in the Bay Area and is used at restaurants such as Pizzaiolo. I was quoted $70 for a 20lb case of curd (a steal if you ask me), though I am sure you can buy it in small quantities as well. Unfortunately, Fairfield is a bit far for me, but I will probably end up making the trip one of these days. Let me tell you that once you taste freshly pulled mozzarella, there's no going back to store bought!

          I originally stumbled on this thread early last year while looking for a local source of mozzarella curd and hope that others will find this post useful.

          1. Pasta shop has it and in an amount to make one ball. It was harder to make than I thought!
