Burrata cheese in Madison, WI

DanaB Aug 31, 2009 04:26 PM

Hi All,

I am planning to make Suzanne Goin's heirloom tomato salad with burrata cheese for a potluck this coming weekend, and I was wondering if any of the cheese shops (like fromagination) or Whole Foods carries a good brand of burrata cheese. In Los Angeles, a local producer called Gioia made it locally, so you could be sure it was fresh and good. Do any Wisconsin cheesemakers make burrata? If I can't find a good source of burrata, I'll substitute with fresh mozzarella, and would be interested in recommendations of good local producers of that as well.

Thanks!

    don't know of a burrata maker, but Crave Bros of Waterloo makes very good mozzarella - I used it in a cooking demonstration at the Great Taste of the Midwest, cheers, Lucy

      Thanks for the tip! I will look for it, assuming I'm not able to find the burrata.

      Just in case anyone is still interested in purchasing burrata, they carry it at Whole Foods in Madison. I purchased some last week and I believe it is still on sale for this month. It was excellent.

        Belgioioso Cheese in Denmark Wisconsin is making burrata cheese. Only one I know of for sure in Wisconsin.
