Blue di Bufala
Oh, blue cheese. You never cease to intrigue the taste buds -- which is why we're so curious to try Blue di Bufala, a blue from northern Italy made with (you guessed it) buffalo milk. Have you tried it?
Let's talk buffalo. (Water buffalo, that is.) The only other widely-available buffalo cheese is Mozzarella di Bufala, nearly all of whose merit is due to the milk type alone. If you're familiar with this special sort of mozzarella, you know that it's of a richer flavor and mouthfeel. And no wonder: Buffalo milk is nearly twice as fatty as cow milk.
