What Is Burrata Cheese?
Spun by masters of the craft, burrata’s origins was 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. Burrata, complete with its delightful clash of textures and its sweet and creamy taste is a truly sensational 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. 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.
