Pompano Beach's Vito Volpe Makes the Best Cheese in South Florida

Some of us seek divinity and some of us stumble across it by accident. We practically crashed into the pearly gates one day when scoping out the North Bay Village Farmer's Market.

Avid cheeselovers, there was no way we were going to leave the market without our discovery -- Mozzarita burrata. Mozzarita has a full line of cheese products handmade in Pompano Beach from local ingredients; other Mozzarita products like prosciutto and olive oil are imported from Italy. The company has come a long way from when it received a nod from the Miami New Times for Best Mozzarella in 2008.

As sure as we were of taking fresh, handmade burrata home, we had no idea that it would be a life-changing experience. Vito Volpe makes the best cheese in South Florida.

So good in fact, that every Friday, we hit the market and buy out whatever's left. Obsession? Try it and you'll understand.
