This made-to-order cheese is hand-formed into 8 oz. balls and packaged in water for an extended shelf life. The name “burrata” means “buttered” in Italian. It boasts a richly sweet, milk flavor that is sure to please the palate.
Extremely rich, fresh mozzarella filled with cream. Unique soft, silky texture. Name derived from “burro,” Italian for “butter.”
Silky on the outside
Richly sweet, milk flavor
Burrata is a very delicate cheese and handling of the product should be limited. Suggest removing the seal from the cup and draining the water. Portion the cheese while still inside the cup. Remove the portions to be eaten and reseal remaining portions. Use within 1-2 days for best flavor.
Goes Well With
Pair with roasted peppers, herbs, cured meats, melon, grapes and light wine. Goes well with salad, prosciutto crudo, hard crusted bread, fresh tomato with olive oil and cracked black pepper, or pasta. Cut and serve on endive leaves for a fresh tasting appetizer, or create a caprese sandwich with Burrata, sliced Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve with fresh grilled vegetables for an antipasto.
