Burrata!

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.

And warned.

    Oh, my goodness, that looks (and sounds – I had to look it up) amazing! My first thought was how bad it must be for someone watching what they eat, so I looked that up too … I’m heartened to find out that a 1oz serving of Burrata is just 2 points on weight watchers plus!! Yay, I *must* find some of this!

    That looks so yummy! Does it taste like mozzarella? Believe it or not, mozzarella is the ONLY cheese I eat. I know – I’m weird….

    It’s hard to believe that caprese could be any better, but since you’re the one saying it, I’ve got to get busy in search of burrata.

    It looks absolutely amazing! Your summery combo of fresh cheese, handpicked heirloom tomatoes and spicy basil can’t be beat! No better meal…except maybe a little fresh fruit with ice cream at the end?
