More About Burrata Cheese
Spun by masters of the craft, burrata’s origins were as a creative way to use the leftover scraps from fresh mozzarella production. The elastic cheese is shaped into purses, filled with curd and topped with cream, for a sumptuous result. Woven and shaped by hand artisans achieve the perfect balance for these stretched. Shaped, filled, and knotted closed, the whole process of creating this very special cheese is done by hand by true masters of the trade. Fresh burrata, with its delightful clash of textures and its sweet and creamy taste, is a truly sensational cheese.
What is Burrata Cheese?
Burrata means buttery in Italian, and just like butter, this rich, luscious cheese makes almost any meal taste better, whether it's a salad, pizza, or pasta...However, it's traditionally eaten by itself, perhaps with a drizzle of good olive oil and a small side of basil.
Burrata has an incredibly rich, cream-like flavor that while mild, is filled with milky notes. The sweetness of the cream really shines through, which makes this cheese a true joy to savor. The outside texture is smooth and elastic, while the inside is creamy and curdled like ricotta – cutting open a burrata is a joyous experience!
How To Serve Burrata
The best way to serve fresh burrata is at room temperature. We recommend removing it from the refrigerator at least half an hour prior to enjoying it. When ready to eat, slice along the center of the sack, allowing the creaminess to ooze out. A few pieces of crusty bread will help you clean the plate.
We love fresh burrata as an appetizer, drizzled with your finest olive oil and a good seasoning with sea salt and fresh-ground pepper. A crusty baguette or focaccia is the perfect partner. Serve it with fresh roasted vegetables for a side salad, or just simple baby greens and tomatoes. On top of a pizza, burrata is sublime. There are so many options when it comes to this amazing Italian cheese!
