NOTES : Fresh mozzarella cheese is a soft white cheese with a delicate,
mild flavor, which is very different from the firm, stringy type of
mozzarella you probably buy for pizza. Fresh mozzarella is available in
Italian markets, cheese shops, and some supermarkets or by mail order
through the Mozzarella Company, 2944 Elm St., Dallas, TX 75226;
800/798-2954 or fax 214/741-4076.
