I know that I haven’t posted for a long time, and I have no excuses. But I am back, and so so so in love with this cheese. If I was to gain weight on one thing alone, I would happily do so with: Burrata.
Burrata is a mix of mozzarella and cream that has been stuffed inside a ball of mozzarella. It has an extremely creamy texture. When you cut a good burrata in half, it will loose its form.
This cheese is delicious served on crusty bread, with a drizzle of oil, or used in a salad among cherry tomatoes and basil. I recommend finding the creamiest and freshest version you can and eating the whole thing as a meal for two, or share it as a starter with friends. I am lucky enough to have found one of the best cheese producers at my local market here in Bergamo. Every monday he brings a beautiful variety of fresh cheese, but, for me, the burrata wins every time.
