This was going to be a Wordless Wednesday post because I think the picture is yummy enough to not need any words. Then I kept thinking about how it’s a picture of burrata and I’d never even heard of burrata until last Tuesday when Laurie told me I simply had to try it in place of fresh mozzarella next time I made a caprese salad.
So I looked it up online and I found it on wikipedia. And then I checked out Maplebrook Fine Cheese, the cheese-maker that Laurie recommended. I thought I’d have to drive to Vermont to get it – and I would have based on Laurie’s recommendation and the description of the stuff – but then I noticed I could buy it at Roche Bros, which just so happens to be my regular grocery store. Wouldn’t you know that when the sale flyer for Roche Bros came last week it listed the burrata as being on sale? It was fate, I tell you.
I bought it and served it with a sliced heirloom tomato, basil from my herb garden and an awesome baguette. And here’s where we come back to my original thoughts on this post because, people, there are no words for how wonderful this stuff is.
Consider yourselves informed.
