Burrata Cheese

Where can I get burrata cheese in the East Bay?

  1. If you have an A.G. Ferrari's, I've seen it there.

      I've bought it at the one on Solano Ave in Berkeley. You have to call in and ask to be put on the list unless they have it in stock. They only get shipments in every other week or so and it goes fast!

    2. I have seen it at Cowgirl Creamery at the Ferry Building

      1. Here's a old thread with tons of places.

        Besides A.G. Ferrari's in the East Bay it mentions
        Maybe Whole Foods
        The Pasta Shop
        Farmstead Cheeses (Alameda


        Anyone interested in SF, besides Cowgirl
        Say Cheese
        Bryan's Market (the larger grocery store, not the smaller meat/fish market) on California Street

          Farmstead isn't carrying it anymore -- it's very perishable, and they were having to discard too much of it if they couldn't sell it in 2-3 days.

        2. I haven't been in for a while, but the Bristol Frams in the Westfield Center did have well priced Gioia burrata, my favorite kind.

          1. I wouldn't say that we're not carrying it anymore Ruth. It's a seasonal thing. People associate it with tomatoes. So when the tomatoes are in season, we have great demand for burrata and bufala mozzarella

              Well, my memory is that you did "say it" -- but I'm glad to know I'm wrong!
