Burrata Cheese is made from Mozzarella, but it is not Mozzarella.
It is made with a sheet of Pasta Filata (Mozzarella), and Stracciatella, which are strings of fresh mozzarella cheese curds mixed with fresh cream. The Stracciatella creates a soft consistency that is elegantly creamy and silky. All of these ingredients give Burrata cheese its incredible lightness and freshness.
It is recommended to keep Burrata cheese on a higher shelf of the refrigerator, far from food with strong odours, in order to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells.
Burrata should be stored in a food container with tight lid to preserve cheese freshness and to protect from moisture, odours and possible moulding in the fridge. Freezing is not recommended.
Burrata is typically served at room temperature, and it is best served within 48 hours of purchase. The real magic happens when burrata is sliced open and the creamy filling spills out. It makes a nice topping on a salad and is wonderful served with crusty bread.
