Chef suggestions

Mozzarella cheese originated in the Campania region, in the South of Italy. It was in this region the buffalo milk was first used to this purpose at the time (hence the official name Mozzarella di Bufala Campana). However, mozzarella, nowadays produced in different countries, can also be made out of cow milk, giving the whole a yellowish tinge.
