It was an extremely hot day in Compania and after a two hour ride we were warmly greeted by Manuela, a charming, interesting, and professional woman! Manuela and her husband own Azienda Agricola Torre Lupara, home to over 2000 Mediterranean Buffalo and maker of some of the world's finest Buffalo Mozzarella! Manuela speaks little English so a local teacher acted as a superb translator. We began with review of the origin of Mediterranean Buffalo, how they are raised, and the making of Buffalo Mozzarella and Ricotta. For example, handmade Mozzarella has a "Y: shape on its seam and the Mediterranean Buffalo gestate for 10 months, then the new born must be hand fed 3x's daily for 60 days but remain productive for 18+ years prior to butchering. One bull is dedicated to 50 females! Following our introduction we all "booted up" for a tour of the cheese making facilities(all hand made), the pastoral countryside, the fields, birthing room, nursery(for a demonstration on hand feeding which some of us did), and the swimming pools and sprays. Some of these buffalo actually seemed to recognize Manuela, a former dog trainer, as we traversed the farm! Then it was time for lunch. We were led to the second floor of the administration building where large tables sitting 8-10 were set up to eat family style in a room tastefully decorated with local pictures. We dined on some of the most outstanding Italian cuisine beginning with Eggplant, Parmegiano Reggiano with Walnuts in a shell topped with the best and freshest Marinara we have ever tasted!! Then a cheese tasting of Azienda Agricola Torre Lupara's offerings served with bread which was baked in a stone oven fueled by olive branches and only available locally. Absolutely delish! Followed by organic local Honey and Buffalo Ricotta, Bocconcini(small mozzarella balls) with Cherry Tomato and Basil on skewers, braided Buffalo Mozzarella made that morning as was the Mozzarella in a ball, and Smoked Mozzarella and home made Buffalo Salami. Dessert was Buffalo Milk Gelato. An absolutely incredible culinary experience! Thank You Manuela!!
