I have read about this cheese a few times in the last couple of months and would really like to try it. Does anybody know where I can get it in Calgary?

      I saw a video on YouTube. A chef was demonstating how he made it in-house. I'm going to try it very soon.
      Type in barrata and go from there.

        I picked some up at Cookbook Co last weekend and it was the real deal. I hadn't noticed it there before, so I'm not sure if they always carry it.

          I second White Gold! So nice an fresh. You an purchase from them at their factory in NE Calgary (1319-45th Avenue NE). I also purchase it from Say Cheese as well.

            There's also a vendor at the Calgary Farmers' Market who sells White Gold. Their fior di latte is incredible.

            This is an old post but I thought I'd answer: I did get a burrata recently from Bite and it was imported from Italy. I was disappointed, however, that the centre was not at all soft or liquid. This was just after the flood so it's possible they had to freeze it?

            Say Cheese in the Crossroads Farmer's market gets it in the summer and they will special order it when you want it. Beware of the burrata in the blue bag: it's filled with very firm pearl bocconcini and doesn't give you the soft, sumptous interior that is so good. However, there is a local cheesemaker called White Gold that makes buffalo mozzarella and burrata and I assure you it's very close to the real deal and much better than some lower quality imports. I'd highly recommend giving it a try. Say Cheese stocks many of their products and IMHO it's one of the best cheese shops in the city.

              We must have had the same batch.

                In fairness to Bite, I got the same brand of imported burrata at another shop and it was similar to what I had from bite: a nice cheese, but not much cream in the interior. For about $15 a ball it isn't to my taste. Burrata definitely varies a lot by brand. The less creamy one has a piece of green paper tied around it and it's definitely from Italy. BTW,another great Italian filled cheese is burrini: it's firmer, looks like caciocavallo, and has a ball of fresh butter in the center. Lovely as a breakfast cheese. (I did NOT know you could buy direct from White Gold!)

              Try Bite Groceteria.
