Fresh Mozzarella in the Hudson Valley
- Sommelier Jul 16, 2012 07:04 AM
Help! I'm opening a wine bar in the mid-Hudson Valley, and I need a source for freshly made (preferably daily) mozzarella. Any leads? Thanks.
i don't know if he still makes it, but popovich provisions in pine plains used to make the best mozz up here. i now get fresh mozz from quattro's (pleasant valley, near rte 44 / taconic) but there's a few places...
where are you looking? you can email me in profile if you want...
S & J Deli on Rt. 52 in Hopewell has good mozzarella.
Rossi's Deli is also an excellent source of fresh mozzarella, but I'm not sure if they make it in-house.
Mario's Bread on Rt. 82 in Hopewell also has great mozzarella.
Have you considered making your own? It's a pretty simple process. I can't comment on the time cost involved, but you'd certainly save on raw materials and you can't get much fresher.
depending what op means by mid-husdon valley, the one in corltandt manor does as well. It was written up in the ny times a couple of years ago. op, would be good if you gave us more detail on the location.
btw, were I to start a wine bar, I don't think I'd choose mozzarella as one of my cheeses. We've organized 20-30 charity wine and cheese tastings, worked in the wine industry, we've never used mozz. I guess if you're a sommelier as your ch name suggests, you know what you're doing.
