Lemon Mascarpone Cheesecake

Justine Schofield, as seen on Everyday Gourmet, That’s Amore Cheese

Burrata is a decadent and divine cheese. This award-winning product 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; however, if you are keen to turn it up a notch, we have a special recipe for you. Made using only the best-quality farm-fresh milk sourced in Victoria, That’s Amore Cheese produces award-winning Italian-style cheeses that are proudly free of preservatives and artificial colours.
