It is as though you one is tasting three different textures and flavours all at once - the sweetness of the cream, the shredded mozzarella with a touch of acidity, and the more complex and cheesy outer layer. Did you know: Burrata means buttered in Italian. The soft, buttery center is made from fresh cream and shredded pieces of mozzarella called stracciatella. Common uses: Burrata go well with salad,prosciutto crudo, crusty bread, fresh tomatoes with olive oil, cracked black pepper, or pasta.
