Burrata is a fresh Italian cow or buffalo milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture.
Burrata is a typical product of the Puglia region in Italy’s southeast, first made in the early 1900s near the town of Andria. The word burrata, means “buttered” in Italian, which is in reference to its its creaming and spongy filling.
The cheese is usually served fresh and has a rich, buttery flavour which goes well with salad, prosciutto crudo, bread, fresh tomatoes or pasta. Burrata is a highly regarded Italian cheese product and is renowned around the world.
