Stracciatella is a delightful Italian cheese with a soft and creamy texture that is sure to tantalize your taste buds. This cheese is traditionally made from buffalo milk, although cow's milk variations are also popular and widely available. The name "stracciatella" translates to "little rags" in Italian, which perfectly captures the appearance of this cheese. It is made by stretching fresh cheese curds and then tearing them into small shreds or "rags." These shreds are then combined with rich, creamy buffalo whey or milk, resulting in a luscious and indulgent cheese. Stracciatella is highly regarded for its artisanal production methods and its commitment to using high-quality milk. Traditional cheesemakers take great care in crafting this cheese, ensuring that each batch is made with precision and attention to detail.
- Stracciatella has a delicate and mild flavour profile that is both creamy and slightly sweet. It boasts a luxurious and silky texture, making it a versatile ingredient that can be used in various culinary creations. The cheese melts beautifully, making it perfect for spreading on warm bread or incorporating it into pasta dishes, risotto, and salads.
- One of the most iconic uses of stracciatella is as a filling for the popular Italian dish, burrata. In this preparation, the creamy stracciatella is encased within a mozzarella shell, creating a delectable combination of textures and flavours.
- When served on its own, stracciatella pairs wonderfully with fresh tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. The contrasting flavours and textures create a harmonious and refreshing combination that showcases the cheese's delicate characteristics.
