Burratina is a luscious and creamy Italian cheese that is often described as a miniature version of burrata. It is a fresh cheese that originates from the Puglia region in southern Italy, where it is meticulously crafted using traditional methods. Burratina begins its journey as a pouch of mozzarella cheese. The outer layer is made from stretched cow's milk curds, forming a smooth and delicate shell. The inside is filled with a combination of fresh cream and stracciatella, which consists of shreds of mozzarella soaked in cream. This filling gives burratina its signature creamy and decadent texture. The exterior of burratina is typically a thin and smooth layer of mozzarella, showcasing a snowy white colour. It encloses the rich, creamy center, creating a beautiful contrast. When sliced open, the interior oozes with a velvety and soft mixture of cream and mozzarella strands, creating an indulgent treat for cheese lovers.
- The flavour profile of burratina is delicate and mild, with hints of sweetness from the cream and a milky essence from the mozzarella. Its creamy texture and subtle taste make it a versatile cheese that pairs well with various ingredients and flavours.
- Burratina is best enjoyed fresh and at room temperature to fully appreciate its luxurious texture and delicate flavours. It can be served as an appetizer, accompanied by crusty bread, fresh tomatoes, and drizzles of high-quality olive oil. The creaminess of burratina complements the sweetness of ripe tomatoes, creating a harmonious combination.
- This cheese can also be incorporated into a variety of dishes, such as salads, pasta, and pizzas. When used as a topping, burratina adds a creamy and luxurious touch, creating a delightful contrast with other ingredients.
