Burrata is a mozzarella with a creamy filling and is a delicacy from Puglia in southern Italy. Perfect for pizza, pasta or as an appetizer.
The creamy Italian cheese Burrata is becoming increasingly popular and often appears in recipes as well as in restaurants. In appearance, the cheese looks like a regular mozzarella, but it has a creamy interior that flows out when you cut the cheese. No wonder it is so popular.
Burro means butter in Italian and that is about what you can say that burrata is – a buttery and creamy variant of mozzarella. The “shell” on the burrata is made from cow’s milk and the core is filled with a creamy mixture of mozzarella strips and cream.
