Cheese curds

Okay, my curiosity was aroused and I found a web site
at that gives an
explanation, in english, of pasta filata and the
making of mozzarella and other pasta filata cheeses:
the process starts with curd.  (It states there are no
buffalo dairies in the USA, but I believe one started
operating in California within the last couple of
years and produces fresh mozzarella di bufala.)

How did we get from dialects to cheesemaking, anyway?
