I know this isn't in NYC, but it's where I get my curd from. I'm trying to make friends with my local Italian shop, so I can score some from them...

If you can't find any, give this site a chance...Curd

As far as I know, most of the places in New York that sell so-called made-on-premises mozz use Polly-O curds.

What he said...

I enjoy the results I get a great deal. The shipping is expensive, no doubt, but the cost still comes in under what they are charging for mozz in the stores. And, nothing compares to that still warm freshness of your own pulled mozz...

I buy huge chunks (over ten pounds), break it down and vacuum seal it, then freeze it. It works superbly and I can have fresh whenever I want.

The one time I tried to make curd for mozzarella it was a disaster, and I'm told by people with a lot more skill and knowledge than I can muster that it is a very tricky curd to make - pH needs to be spot on, for one thing. Me, I'm sticking to soft goat cheese from now on - foolproof; less like a science experiment and more like cooking.

Has FatGuy succeeded in making mozz curd? If so, a tutorial might be in order.

I too have tried making the curd several times. It never worked out for me.
