If all goes according to plan, I am spending today baking Christmas cookies with my…
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.

Okay, my work is done. Hee hee!
Oh that looks sooooooo good.
Oh grrl, that looks awesome!!
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!
Ooooooo! Sounds and LOOKS Yummy! Will have to try some! I think it WAS fate for sure : )
Beautiful, simply beautiful. And I have big-time tomato envy as ours are still green!
I love fresh mozzarella and that looks delish! I’m sold.
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.
I have seen recipes for mozzarella. I wonder if I could make burrata myself. The only cheese I’ve made is paneer.
You have GOT to stop making me hungry!
If you want a REAL treat, try the burrata in sort-of BLTs. Burrata, pancetta and heirloom tomatoes. This recipe is to die for.
Heaven! Gotta find me some fresh mozzarella in Maine! (on vacation)
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?
Oh. Mah. Goodness. Thank-you very much for that!
OMG, I love how it took SO MANY WORDS to say NO WORDS! Haha! Also, that looks absolutely delicious.
um, yeah, welcome to the club! burrata is the key to the fabulous bryant park caprese salad. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/mere2007/3637299640/)
