Tasting Table Chicago reports that Wisconsin cheesemaker Cedar Grove is now selling buffalo mozzarella:

Cheesemaker Bob Willis perfected his Italian-style fresh buffalo's-milk mozzarella throughout the summer: heating and stretching the elastic curds; rolling them into balls of luxuriously soft, creamy cheese; and brining them in lightly salted water.

It's $14.25 a pound (plus S&H) via mail order from Cedar Grove.

For more on the story, Cheese Underground has a great blog post detailing the collaboration between Israeli immigrant Dubi Ayalon, who owns the finicky herd of water buffalo, and the cheesemakers. [via Mark Bello]
