lol gb, yup, we're a coupla fart smellers. umm, i mean smart fellers...
rms, that green can cheese is kraft grated parmesan cheese. dw loves the stuff. actually, the stuff ain't half bad.
i prefer to grate my own tho, watching those tiny bits curl and melt as the hit the hot food. it's part of the experience.
i really like locatelli brand pecorino romano, grana padano cheese, and an imported italian parm that i get in costco (forgot the name. it's in a green and clear cryovac wrapping).
and oh man, real mozarella di buffala (water buffalo milk mozzarella).
cow's milk mozarella is like bland rubber compared to real buffala mozz...
hey, where's rdg and urmaniac, they'd know about real bufala. it's extremely hard to come by as it is only fresh for a week or so. most of the "authentic" stuff sold in places in the u.s. (like whole foods) is weeks old, and has lost most of it's flavor.
