Burrata is a decadent and divine cheese. This award-winning cheese has a mozzarella skin in a money bag style filled with strings of stretched curd bathed in cream. Cut through the outer layer of mozzarella and it’s obvious why this cheese is called burrata, meaning “buttered” in Italian. The inside is soft and oozy! It needs nothing but a spoon, but if you are keen to turn it up a notch, try these recipes from That’s Amore Cheese.
