Buffalo Stance - Three Buffalo Milk Cheeses featured this week.

Howdy all! Look for three cheeses made from the milk of the water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis).

Caciocavallo di Bufala from Quatro Portoni in Bergamo, Italy is stretched-curd and wonderfully milky.

Gran Bu di Bufala, also from Quatro Portoni, is a hard cheese reminiscent of Sicilian Canestrato, but not as salty or intense.

 Montbru (Oriol di Montbru) is from buffalo brought from Italy to the l’Empordà Nature Reserve in Catalunya - young, creamy, sweet and very versatile.
