Burrata is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent cheeses you will ever come across. It is a delicate shell of fresh mozzarella that encases stracciatella. It is a special moment of anticipation for your dinner guests when you press the knife into your Burrata to release the stracciatella from inside the heart of its mozzarella casing. The little shreds of mozzarella that makes up the stracciatella combines with the rich cream to become as soft and milky as it is decadent.
When making Burrata, the hot fresh mozzarella is formed into a pouch, which is then filled with shreds of mozzarella and cream before being pinched closed. Burrata originated in Italy, and grew in popularity in the 1950’s as a way to use up scraps of mozzarella. It is now being discovered globally and is being served in fine restaurants around the world.
For serving purposes, bring the Burrata to room temperature and enjoy immediately.
It doesn’t matter how you serve it. You can break it over bread, you can break it over a pizza, you can break it over a bed of tomatoes or a salad of roasted vegetables. Whatever way you choose, season it with a little salt, pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. But keep your recipes simple because Burrata is the hero.
