All the product of Caseificio artigiana are made of the excellent quality milk, rigorusly contrilled, from the farms around Putigano (Bari).
Burrata means ‘buttered’ in Italian, it is a fresh artisanal cheese from Puglia, made from cow milk mozzarella and cream with a solid silky outer shell and soft creamy center.
La burrata de Caseificio Artigiana has been elected product of the year 2011 by the Cheese of the Year contest. When the Burrata is sliced open, ritagli-thickened panna (cream) flows out.
The flavour and different textures of the inside and outside make it go well with salad, prosciutto crudo, crusty bread, fresh tomatoes with olive oil and cracked black pepper or pasta.
Place the burrata in the middle of a dish, place heirloom tomatoes cut into quarters around, season with extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of grilled spices salt. Important secret: keep the burrata out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before serving.
