Battipaglia. My second visit there yet I've only ever seen one part of it–this little shack of a store that makes and sells Mozzarella di Bufala. As we left the Amalfi Coast and headed down to Calabria, we stopped for lunch and ate the one and only item on the menu here: Caprese salad. The best Caprese salad with big hunks of Mozarella di Bufala and the reddest, juiciest tomatoes.
And once the family heard we'd be making a cheese shop pit stop, requests were called in- "Burrata!" "Mozzarella di Bufala!" Everything packed up for us in a tidy styrofoam box, we hit the A3 again.
