Bufarolo is an Italian fresh cheese made with full-fat pasteurized buffalo milk by Quattro Portoni in Bergamo, Italy.

It has a white pearly colour, and is very friable, chalkish and lumpy without a rind. It is perfect for salads, served in pieces on its own or accompanied with honey and fresh or dried fruit.
