Burrata cheese is made by taking a ball of mozzarella cheese and pulling it flat. This flattened piece of semi-soft cheese is then used as an envelope to fill stracciatella cream scooped into the middle. It is then closed by hand and dipped in hot water to seal it, and conserved in cold salty water. Stracciatella refers to “strips” and it literally is a cheese made from strips of cheese mixed with fresh cream to create an almost soupy (and tasty) fresh cheese. An addition of Italian truffle paste gives the delicious truffle flavor to this burrata.
