Where to buy Mozzarella Curds


Steve M's post in the other thread about making mozzarella (http://www.thepizzabible.com/posts/is-it-worth-the-effort-to-make-homemade-mozzarella), has me itching to make my own mozzarella now.

To start with I'll use curd, but I'm wondering where I can get it. I haven't seen it at Whole Foods or any of the markets I frequent. Is it easily available or something I can special order?

How does one usually procure this item?

Raj,

I'm not sure you can buy them. You most likely will have to make them yourself with water, citric acid, rennet, whole milk, etc.

I haven't seen cheese curds anywhere, either. There's a cheese shop in Cole Valley called "Say Cheese". They might have them.

In Pittsburgh there are many options. I would check with restaurant supply places. I buy it in 10 pound blocks (best way to save) It will always say not to freeze the curd but I always do and never have a problem. Also ask your favorite restaurant or a friend that owns one to order you some. The internet is going to cost you more plus shipping.

Thanks Steve and Mike. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area and will start Cowgirl Creamery.
