What’s Summer About
If Not Heirloom Tomatoes and Fresh Mozz
Mozzarella is always delicious, but it’s especially tasty in the summer. That’s because the dairy cows, or water buffalo if you’re lucky, are grazing on sweet grasses and herbs that grow in the warmer months, imparting fresh flavors and unique aromas into the milk and resulting cheese. Those herbaceous notes compliment the shit out of late-summer heirloom tomatoes, which I find especially sweet. And I’ll have you know that there are some mighty surprising health benefits to mozzarella cheese too.
