Where to find stracciatella (the cheese)?

Hey Chowhounders,

So I went to Italy a few weeks ago and found a cheese in the mozzarella section called stracciatella, which is like the inside of burrata, but I think its more creamy and milky. I love buffalo mozzarella and burrata and I was so excited by this I ate it anywhere I could find it.

Anyway, so now we're back in Toronto, we're wondering if anyone knows where to buy them?

It's stringy, creamy, and very delicious. Not to be confused with the stracciatella gelato flavour (which is also delicious).

Thanks guys!

    You could try giving the International Cheese factory a call (http://internationalcheese.ca) to see if they can supply some through the retail store.

      Just to be clear, stracciatella isn't LIKE the cheese used to stuff burrata it IS the cheese used to stuff burrata.

      That said I haven't seen it sold here except in the context of it's use in burrata.

        Oops. Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't really sure what it was, but that was what I gathered from a quick Wikipedia search.
