Watch Gordon Ramsay Round Up a Couple of Buffalo and Make Mozzarella Cheese

The chef then hosts a cookout and whips up Caprese salad and mozzarella-topped buffalo burgers

Mozzarella from Scotland is nothing new, but until recently, the country had never produced the delicacy that is buffalo mozzarella. Well, thanks in part to shouty chef Gordon Ramsay, that has changed. In this video, Ramsay visits a countryside buffalo farm to help make the first-ever batch of Scottish buffalo mozz.

"As a nation, we now produce more mozzarella than Italy," Ramsay says in the video. "Sadly, it's processed mozzarella, all from cow's milk and nothing to do with buffalo's milk. So this, from a chef's point of view, is a very exciting journey."

Ramsay and his farming partner round up the buffalo, get to milking, and with the help of a couple of cheese experts, transform that milk into smooth mozzarella orbs. When it's all said and done, the chef hosts a cookout and whips up Caprese salad and mozzarella-topped burgers made from, what else, buffalo meat.
