Went to San Francisco this weekend, and my food highlight was Burrata. Geez, I couldn't believe it. It was like trying on an amazingly sensuous, silk robe -- on my tongue! ...and tasty. (Nob Hill Grille)

Where can one get it in Mpls? Has anyone ever made it?

    I notice that Burch has it in a couple of places on their menu, and it can be added to their pizzas.

      Gioia Cheese Co. (outside of LA) makes a wonderful burrata. Many San Francisco restaurants serve this and it is sold at the Ferry Plaza Market there as well. In the past I have purchased this at Surdyks but, due to the high perishabilty factor, they only had it in summer (tomato season). You might want to give them a call. I liked it better than the Italian imports and the Belgiosio or Trader Joes versions (unfortunately at 2x or more the price, but worth it!).

        Yea, I have had exponentially better burrata than the mass market brands, but it's also exponentially harder to get.

          Agreed. Trader Joe's or Wholefoods (who also carries Burrata) is better than nothing...but not in the same league. Love it nonetheless.

        I've seen it at Broder's and France 44.

          They always have it at Lunds on 50th (oops that's in Edina) I think it is Belgioioso brand. It's awfully good.

            I've seen it on Scusi's menu.

                I've gotten it at Byerly's before. Costco usually has it, too.

                  Toast Wine bar on north 1st St in Mpls has some burrata items on their menu.

                    Surdyk's gets it an imported version and it sells very quickly. It's best to call and reserve a tub. I've also seen it at Whole Foods from time to time.

                    Seward Coop carried (at least in the summer) the Wisconsin-made BelGioioso burrata, for a really good price -- $7/tub if I recall. I haven't checked to see if they've had it the last few months, as I think of it as as summer food.

                      Not Minneapolis, but I've gotten it at St. Paul Cheese Shop on Grand Ave. In Minneapolis, Surdyk's is always worth a shot, though I've never purchased burrata there.
