No longer do we have to travel to Italy for burrata cheese, it’s being made right here. The best way to explain barrata is like this — mozzarella is shaped into a pouch, small scraps of mozzarella are stuffed into them and these are topped with fresh cream before being closed off with a "cheese" knot. If it sounds complicated that's because burrata is a very complicated cheese to make. Timing is important; one mistake and the pouch can break. To enjoy burrata at its best you should eat it as fresh as possible.
