Where can I find burrata in Toronto?

Checked every cheese vendor at St. Lawrence Market without luck. Perhaps someone could recommend a cheese shop specializing in Italian cheeses that might carry burrata.

Thank you :)

      1. They had some at Leslieville Cheese Market a couple weeks ago when I was looking for buffalo mozzarella....give them a call.

        1. I saw some at Scheffler's Delicatessen in The St. Lawrence Market about a week ago. One of them was definitely made in Toronto (Santa Lucia brand). Not sure about the authenticity of the products. My understanding is that real burrata has to be eaten quickly, preferrably having just been purchased in southern Italy.

            Scheffler's carries the Santa Lucia regularly, but every other week (usually) gets a shipment of stuff from Italy. It's twice the price ($20), but very good. Twice as good? Not sure.

            The Santa Lucia has a little mascarpone in the middle also.

          2. La Salumeria at Yonge and Eg has had it recently. You would have to call to confirm.
