Burrata!

  • 9

Last time I had it was at the 2010 Fancy Food Show, raw, but I've heard it's like liquid gold when topped on pizza or pasta. Anywhere that serves it as a topping or antipasto? Any groceries import it in?

  1. Pizzeria Molto in Fairfield offers it as an antipasto and as a pizza topping. I have not had it myself.

      The burrata pizza at Molto is very tasty. You don't really get a good sense of what the cheese is like at room temp, but it's a good pizza. I haven't had it as antipasto there. The Fairfield Cheese Store sells a pretty good burrata as well...made in New Haven, but I can't remember the name.

    2. I've purchased buratta from Liuzzi Cheese, located at 322 State St., North Haven, CT.
      Oh yes ... Cut open, drizzled with good olive oil. sprinkled with a little salt and freshly cracked pepper, and eaten with good crusty italian bread .... nothing better !!!

        That might be the place that Fairfield Cheese gets it from...do they make it there? Balducci's in Westport also carries burrata, but they just changed brands and it is terrible.
        I do agree that burrata is at its best at room temperature, on a salad, or with beautiful heirloom tomatoes or with crust bread as you said. I think once you tear it open and put it on something hot you lose the whole sense of it...

      2. I'm not sure where you are located, but there is a table at the Falmouth Farmer's Market in Falmouth, MA (for the life of me I can't remember the vendor's name) that sells freshly made burrata. I tried the gorgonzola burrata and it was delicious with prosciutto, figs, and drizzled balsamic.

        1. Costco occasionally carries, and tho I've never tried theirs, I've heard reports it's very good. To up the ante on caprese, try it with burrata, a sliced fresh summer tomato, torn basil, and a drizzle of balsalmic vinaigrette -- like Cindy's

            In Tucson AZ I had burrata from Costco and it was excellent. No Costco in the Berkshires --- and no burrata either. Alas.

          2. I bought some from Whole Foods and It was as good as I have had in Italy it was $9.99 for about 8 ounces.
