I want to know where I can buy fresh burrata in Los angeles? I have been enjoying it in restaurants and would like to get some for the house. Around the Grove, or in the general Los Angeles area would be great. TIA
Bristol Farms has it. About $9 for the little tub. I'm not sure if that qualifies as "fresh" enough, but every time I've seen it, the expiration date wasn't far away, but I know it's not the stuff that's flown in from Italy the night before.
THE fresh burrata maker in LA is Caseificio Gioia, in South El Monte (it's probably their burrata that you're eating in restaurants, though I heard that Mozza's is flown in from Italy.)
You can get it a lot of places, such as Bristol Farms, Wally's Wine on Westwood, Surfas, etc. Retailers get the cheese twice a week. Ask them which day they get it, and then you can go there the same day.
just to follow up, here is an email reply from gioia regarding pick up of cheese from their office:
You are welcome to visit our factory and buy our cheese.
Sorry but we are closed weekends. Our operations Hours are M-F 8 AM TO 7 PM.
We take cash or checks. No Credit Cards.
Gioia Cheese Co.
Check Joan's on Third since you're so close. If not them, BHCS surely has it. If you're in Silver Lake, you can get it at the SLCS, too.
I got you covered, Tutto Latte Express on Vine street. They sell Burrata from Gioia for $3.50 a ball, they mostly supply restaurants but they also have a storefront. Definitely going to be cheaper than Bristol Farms or any of the other places mentioned (except the factory) for the same cheese, I highly recommend them.
