Mozzarella cheese curd in Calgary

johnjohnson78 | Dec 12, 2011 01:34 AM

Curious if anyone knows where I can buy the cheese curd necessary to make my own fresh mozza?

I was in Seattle this summer and at the local grocery store (similar to Wholefoods) they were making fresh mozzarella openly in the store.....it absolutely blew away the pre packaged varieties in both texture and flavour.

I asked about it at Scarpones a few months back and they didn't have it or know where to get it. I found this a little surprising. Perhaps I wasn't speaking with the right person....

I'm generally less than satisfied with the cost and flavour of the store bought offerings. I assume the cheese at Mercato is fine but the prices there are generally pretty insulting. I know the stuff at Lina's is decent but I live on the other end of town so it's quite a drive every time I feel like making a margherita pie. That being said I never have asked if they sell the curd there.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.....
