Where to find Real Fresh Italian Buffalo Mozzerella
Just back from a trip in Italy.
Buffalo Mozzeralla that easily pulls apart with your hands that has an almost
stringy inside as you pull it apart. Fresh and tasty. Does anyone in the Toronto Area
actually import or make such a cheese that can be purchased fresh.
I live in North York are but will travel anywhere into the GTA to find the real thing.
The Cheese Boutique in Swansea. Call ahead though, it often sells out.
45 Ripley Ave, Toronto, ON M6S, CA
Actually Burrata is different from what the OP I think is talking about - though it is AWESOME and if you found a place that makes fresh mozza they may make burrata as well. I would get both!
Burrata (if you've never had it) is essentially mozza "stuffed" with loose curd and cream. So it has a mozza texture outside with a much silkier/creamy inside.
It is one of my favorite things to serve sprinkled with salt/pepper/olive oil and crusty bread.
The International Cheese (Santa Lucia brand) factory outlet in the Junction carries buffalo mozza, fior di latte, and various other Italian cheeses. Their nodini also has a fantastic stringy texture, and it's probably the product I purchase most often. Keep in mind that the cheeses are from Ontario herds, so don't expect the same flavour profile as you found in Italy. It's "factory" as opposed to "artisanal" cheese, but the price and quality are pretty good.
Burrata is a different product. They carry that too, stuffed with bocconcini shreds.
