Fresh Italian cheese made from cream and mozzarella giving a soft texture to the cheese. Burrata literally translates into “buttered,” which acts as a sneak peek into its rich flavor. At first glance it might look similar to a fresh ball of mozzarella, but the real charm of burrata — and what sets it apart — is what’s on the inside. Burrata has a solid outer curd made from fresh mozzarella, which is formed into a hollow pouch, then filled with a soft, stringy curd and fresh cream. It has a milky, buttery flavor that’s rich without being too indulgent.
