Burrata

Various ways to enjoy burrata

Burrata, a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream, is the gourmet discovery of the early 21st century. What is marvelous about burrata is that it is often sufficient to simply put it on a plate, open it up
a little, and serve it with a good olive oil, fresh herbs, and crisp vegetables including green tomatoes, mint and asparagus, as pictured here. 

Other gourmet ways to serve
  • On a white pizza (i.e. a pizza without tomatoes) with potatoes. For this, choose a smoked burrata.
     
  • With steamed green beans and white balsamic vinaigrette.
     
  • With nectarines, basil, and prosciutto.
     
  • On its own with some good bread, best-quality olive oil, a sweet ripe tomato, and, if wished, a thin slice of red onion.
     
  • With sage and olive oil in hot fresh pasta
