What is burrata?
Burrata is a form of fresh, semi-soft Italian cheese that features a solid outer shell of mozzarella that's filled with rich, thick cream combined with mozzarella curd.
How do you store fresh burrata?
Burrata can be stored tightly wrapped in the refrigerator for a few days. It is ideally served at room temperature, and once it is cut, should be eaten immediately.
What's the difference between burrata and mozzarella?
Burrata and mozzarella are both types of fresh cheese made from the milk of cows and both are initially produced by kneading and pulling the curd to give it a stretchy, elastic texture. Burrata, however adds an additional step – when the cheese is still hot, it's formed into a pouch and filled with bits of leftover mozzarella curd and fresh cream to create a creamy center.
