Lunch In Rome

 Proschutto & mozzarella di bufala - perfect lunch in Italy.

In the late 1970's, the government of Italy officially recognized the mozzarella di bufala name to protect consumers from the fraudulent practice of selling mozzarella made of cow's milk at a higher price than mozzarella di bufala. 

Approximately fifteen years later, in 1993, mozzarella di bufala became a "DOP" cheese, or in English commonly known as "PDO". This provides protection and regulation by the "Consortium of Mozzarella di Bufala Campana" who guaranteed the origin and legal standard of identity as made by only 100% buffalo milk.
