Italian Food Safari - Tonight
Includes a bit on Buffalo Mozarella (I didn't know they made it here)...

Italian Food Safari
7.30pm – 8pm SBS

Guy visits Far North Queensland to learn how buffalo mozzarella is made and the secret of its taste and texture. He then shares his recipe for Caprese salad with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Suckling lamb is a dish of celebration in Italy and Robert Marchetti of Icebergs, Sydney, shares his recipe. Next, a Calabrese lunch hosted by Perth butcher Vince Garreffa, with a delicious veal shoulder on the spit, served with homemade pasta. Vince and his wife Anne also show the secrets of cotoletta with capsicum and tomato sauce. The show finishes at the home of presenter Guy Grossi, who keeps Sundays sacred for the event of the day - lunch - the epitome of the Italian philosophy of la dolce vita (life is sweet). Ciao!

I didn't know either. I have never seen any for sale but I will keep my eyes open and hopefully will get to try it some time.

The vid should be available online on the Italian Food Safari website.

I have only seen Buffalo Mozarella avaikable at places like the Re Store in Perth - at about $14 for a few pieces (which I wasn't prepared to pay). Think it was Italian import though.

I missed that final episode and the video hasn't been working on SBS website :(

However, I have tried that North QLD buffalo mozzarella - there are pizza shops here in Brisbane that use it, and I found a deli that sells it by weight at a semi-reasonable price. Will try cooking with some soon; I'm told it's only really good if cooked at high temp.

Then again, it tasted great on a pizza at Vapiano and they cook at 299 degrees electric.
