Mozarella – It is a soft cheese from southern Italy made from Italian’s buffalo milk by the pasta filata method (The milk  is warmed and curdled and allowed to rest for an hour before the curds are cut into small pieces and the whey is drained off. The curds are allowed to rest for a number of hours. Then follows the filatura. The curds are steeped for some hours in a bath of very hot whey, or water. When they begin to float most of the liquid is removed and the curd is mixed and kneaded until the required soft, elastic, stringy texture is obtained)
