Burrata comes from Puglia, let’s discover it together!
It is a stretched curd cheese, consisting of an outer part made of mozzarella and filled with fresh cream & frayed mozzarella. Intense flavor and valued taste, burrata is a cheese that lends itself well to be consumed in purity, but also finds great success with pasta, pizza & more elaborate main courses.
It was 1930 when there was a heavy snowfall in the Castel del Monte area, in Puglia. Lorenzo Bianchino, master cheese maker of the Piana Padula farm, was isolated for a few days. Not being able to deliver the milk, he thought of creating a container with the mozzarella paste and putting the cream that naturally emerged from the milk inside. It was immediately successful. Burrata today is appreciated by great local & international chefs. And what about you, have you tried it?
Burrata is also produced in the United States, particularly in artisanal cheese shops in cities on the East Coast with historically large populations of Italian Americans. ciao ciao
