Making Burrata at Home

lunching_lady Oct 21, 2007 06:29 PM

After enjoying some lovely fresh burrata from our local cheese shop today, I decided that I needed a little bit more of that creamy cheesy heaven in my life. But rather than pay $5 for a little quarter-pound piece, I could make it on my own (right?)... I have done a little searching on what is required, but I'm curious to find out if anyone here has actually tried. From what I've seen, the steps seem pretty straight-forward, leaving me suspicious. If it's so simple, why haven't I heard of more folks making burrata at home?
Also, if anyone knows about a West Coast purveyor of fine mozzarella curd, I would be especially grateful.

    anyone? anyone?

    I'm thinking of making some next week as a thanksgiving appetizer, but resources are few and far between. The best I've found so far is:

    I'm curious to hear what other people's experiences have been.

            Here's a burrata instruction link from the New England Cheesemaking Supply Co blog; it really is not hard to do:

              Thanks for the link. I've been wanting to try this for sometime and these instructions don't look that difficult.

        Gioia in El Monte, CA is a fine purveyor. I go there to buy their super fab burrata when it's convenient. Easily the best I've ever had, and at a super great price.
