If you haven’t tried burrata yet, then you haven’t lived! Burrata is the hot new foodie item that is all the rage at the moment…and for good reason. Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made with mozzarella and cream. How can it not be good, right? The name ‘burrata’ in Italian means ‘buttered’ which is fitting because it is a creamy, buttery, and heavenly cheese that has a mild delicious flavour.
At Cioffi’s we fly in fresh burrata every second Thursday from Italy. We also bring in fresh made American burrata from California every alternating week. They both are delicious in their own right and everyone has their own personal preference. You can’t go wrong with either of them because burrata is perfection! You can serve burrata many ways, such as in pasta, on top of pizza, frittata, or crostini, or my favourite way – by itself.
Our Cucina serves burrata mac and cheese that is a must-try! Mmmm. Buon appetito!
