Burratta in the Triangle?

Any good place in the area that sells this creamy thing?

  1. I don't know what this is precisely but saw them for sale at Southern Season today. They're in the cheese case near the butters.

      Wow, that is huge. Thanks. I had asked them to get me some at Whole Foods (CH location) and they couldn't.

        the issue is, its HIGHLY perishable, and generally needs to be consumed withing 48-72 hours. Its usually made in italy and shipped to the US retailers to be sold immediately. so its tricky

    2. I've gotten it at Trader Joes (the Cary location). I didn't know what it was, so I bought some to try. Was going to make caprese but it was softer inside than I thought. So, I used it on homemade pizza. Yumm! What else is it used for?

        if you google it, you find that it's a soft mozzarella sack filled with mozzarella cuttings that have been blended with a super rich creme and tied up. its a really indulgent thing, and often just "sliced into thick pieces and drizzled with good olive oil and some cracked pepper. sometimes its served along with bitter greens or something...

          It was even on Per Se's menu recently. It was served pretty much as described.

                there's nothing at that

                Is Per Se a restaurant? where is it?

                    How strange..sorry! It gave a nice description of the concept, background and menu.
                    Ditto to the answer below...

        2. I have gotten it at Southern Season, though they don't always have it. Trader Joe's has it too. SS's is better.........serve simply with tomato compote, sea salt, good oil & balsamic.
