Ah, the memories of food in Italy is a fond one for me. My family and I
lived in Naples 1977-80. Croquettes, chicken fried in old oil used to cook
calimari, vino, cafe expresso, and capucchino; especially when working the
night watch. One treat is mozzarella cheese made with the milk of water
buffalo. Mozzarella cheese made in the U.S. is an ersatz bland version.
Have you tried it?
