Burrata is a cheese that was born around 1930 in Puglia, southern Italy, and is made by wrapping fresh cream and pasta filata (mozzarella fiber) in a "bag" of mozzarella cheese dough. It is produced all year round, but due to its unique recipe, it is all handmade. It features a rich aroma reminiscent of butter and fresh cream, a strong taste and sweetness, and a well-balanced acidity. Despite you can fully enjoy its taste with just some salt, pepper and olive oil, in Italy, you can enjoy burrata on top of pizza.

There are many varieties of dairy cows inhabiting each region, and the difference in milk yield and ingredients between breeds gives each cow’s cheese its individuality. In order to have a cheese approved as a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) cheese, it must be made with a specific breed of cow.
A common method of making cheese in Southern Italy, this type of cheese is made by plasticizing and kneading the fresh curd in hot water. As you can see from the words pasta (dough) and filata (fibrous), the dough is fibrous and elastic, and has a taste of fresh milk.
Thanks to the fertile plains and bright climate, Apulia, often referred to as “the Italian food store”, is harvested with abundant ingredients such as wheat, fruits and vegetables. In this area, Burrata with its creamy texture and stretched curd cheese made from cow milk such as scamorza is famous.
Enjoy it as it is with some salt and pepper, or together with olive oil and pan-fried tomatoes. As it is an extremely fresh cheese, we suggest you to enjoy it immediately after purchase.
