after i discovered burrata, i spent a week telling anyone who would listen.
burrata is a freshly made italian cheese composed of mozzarella and cream. it generally comes packaged with the cheese itself wrapped in paper and surrounded by a sea of whey. the external 'shell' of the cheese is mozzarella. however, the inside is a creamy, runny mixture of mozzarella and cream. slicing into burrata is like slicing into a slightly overpoached egg.
