Week X: Fresh Mozzarella, Wonton Soup & Dairy Goats

Week X – Sunday, March 12 (11 to 3)



Joe Tomato Mozzarella – Joe “Tomato” learned to make authentic mozzarella on Arthur Avenue in The Bronx.  When he arrives at a market, his mozzarella is still warm. Creamy and only lightly salted, his mozzarella is the best around. He has been known to make up to 1000 mozzarella balls in one day, using special wooden mozzarella paddles he designed himself.
