Fresh StracciatellaHandmade in Miami, Florida and delivered fresh-as-can-be to your door, our Fresh Stracciatella is the stuff dreams are made of. With a name meaning "little rags", this soft-textured cheese is made from cow's milk cheese churned into curds. Following Italian style methods, the curds are stretched and shredded into ivory-hued strands that are soaked in heavy cream, providing a soft, milky and delicious cheese with hints of saltiness. Most famously, stracciatella is used as a luscious filling for burrata, but it can also be enjoyed by itself, alongside juicy tomatoes and veggies, on top of salads, or spread onto bread and topped with a sweet jam or spread. In this way, what was once a simple peasant dish has now become a beloved gourmet cheese in its own right.
This cheese is made by Mamma's Cheese in Miami, Florida. Because we want it to be as fresh as possible, it is made-to-order and therefore has a 2-to-3-day lead time. Please note that since stracciatella does not keep well for long even in the refrigerator, we recommend consuming it within a few days after delivery.
