Burrata is a sack of mozzarella filled with buttery cream Extremely hard to find because of its very short shelf life, Burrata must be flown in from Italy the day after it is made then quickly sold to consumers and eaten right away. A rare delicacy from Italy's Puglia region, it is often wrapped in asfodelo leaves, which indicate the freshness of the cheese! As long as the outer wrapping stays green, the cheese within is still fresh.
Serve Burrata like you would Mozzarella di Bufala: paired with fresh tomato, onion, olive oil, cracked black pepper and basil leaves. Cut into Burrata and watch its creamy liquid center ooze all over your plate. Enjoy Burrata with special company; it is a treasure to be shared.
