Nomen Clature

Fresh Mozzarella is a rare breed of food.  As far as I can tell, it’s the only food where you can remove the word “fresh” and get an entirely different product—that can still be fresh. You can’t do that with anything else.  Take, for example, fresh fish.  If you take away fresh, it’s still the same thing, only now it gives you diarrhea.  But take the fresh out of fresh mozzarella, and you get a completely different style of cheese that is not only equally delicious, but also safe for human consumption.  Now I’m bout to blow your mind…  What does one call fresh mozzarella that’s a month old?

That’s some food for thought.  Sorry. I had to.
