Burrata in East Bay???

Does anyone know a store where I can find this fresh mozzarella for home consumption???

  1. Berkeley Bowl sells the local Belfiore.

    Cheese Board, the two Pasta Shop branches, and the two Farmstead branches have imported and maybe domestic as well.

      I think Farmstead's is Goia (Southern California) -- they get their weekly shipment on Thursday.

        Farmstead also sometimes has the imported stuff. Pasta Shop seems to keep the imported stuff in stock more of the time (Rockridge branch, can't vouch for the 4th street location).

          My recent experience has been that the Montclair Farmstead runs out of their weekly shipment from Goia by COB on Friday. Very tasty. A nice start to the weekend is to stop at the Montclair Farmstead on Friday evening for the burrata and the free (with the secret word from Facebook) winetasting.

          1. re: The Dive

            According to their most recent newsletter, Farmstead is working on the running out of burrata on Fridays problem. Meanwhile, they got some more in today if you need an immediate burrata fix.

      2. AG Ferrari also has it from Italy.

        I prefer the Goia (so much fresher) if I can catch it at Farmstead on Thursday. It seems that it usually comes in the afternoon, and I can only really get there at lunchtime...

          AG Ferrari on Piedmont Ave. keeps burrata on the shelf far, far too long- this is one product with a meaningful eat-by date, last summer they had it as much as 10 days beyond every time I checked.

            Trader Joe's also has imported burrata, haven't tried it, wonder how conservative the pull dates are.
