Local Civil Rights Activists Want ‘Django Unchained’ Actress To Apologize To The LAPD And Community: LAist

Guys looking for free pass – get in good with police for

dissing black woman? Looks, smells, feels like profiling – Watts’ detainment came shortly after the detainment and arrest of a black TV producer, Charles Belk, who was stopped in Beverly Hills for matching the description of an alleged bank robber. In Belk’s situation, however, it took police six hours to determine that he was not the robber after reviewing video footage.

History of Mozzerella cheese

viva il buffala

water buffalo Water Buffalo milk was the original milk for making mozzarella

Mozzarella is most commonly made with cows milk here in the US. It can also made with goats milk as well. But it didn’t start out with either of those. In Italy it is made with milk from a water buffalo which is the richest creamiest flavor of all because it has the highest butterfat in it.  You can NOT buy water buffalo milk here in the states (how the hell do you milk a water buffalo anyways, even if it is domestic?!!) Mozzarella made with water buffalo milk is called buffala mozzarella. Buffala means female water buffalo. I learned how to make mozzarella with cow’s milk and goats milk because I want it for my Caprese salad with my homegrown tomatoes that I’m growing.

The history of mozzarella starts with the water buffalo and how it came to Italy…
