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?
