Burrata (means ‘buttery’ in Italian) is a pasta filata that is often being compared to mozzarella.
The key differences are the stretching technique employed to produce the cheese and the fact that Burrata is formed into a pouch and then filled with soft, stringy curd and heavy cream.
Burrata Tasting Note
Burrata tastes like mild butter with hints of sweetness comparable to mozzarella. It also gives off a buttery and pleasant aroma.
Thickened stracciatella flows out of Burrata when you sliced it open; it is incredibly soft cheese and extremely satisfying to eat.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
It is best to consume Burrata within 24 hours after it is produce. After 48 hours, it is past its prime.
Burrata goes well with Italian dry-cured ham (Prosciutto) and salad with fresh tomatoes with olive oil. Many people also love to combine this cheese with cracked black pepper and serve it on pasta.
For a quick healthy breakfast or snack, serve Burrata on crusty breads with avocado.
