first of all, let's check out what wikipedia says about it.. fresh italian cheese, made of mozzarella and cream.
"The outer shell is solid mozzarella while the inside contains both mozzarella and cream, giving it a unique soft texture."
right. it's a beautiful white shell that jealously holds its milky treasure, a delicious heart that will melt in your mouth.
to me it's just awesome.. i love mozzarella and this is the best of :D the creamy filling is one of the most luscious things one can eat.. the taste is simple, delicate, outstanding.. involves you like a sweet hug.. palatable, harmonious, mellow..
the best way to eat it to me it's burrata alone, without any other flavor to taint it.. just pure pleasure :) makes an amazing caprese, just some few drops of olive oil, freshly ground black pepper and tomatoes.
that said, sometimes i use burrata for some other dishes.. a few days ago we had 3 or 4 burrate, so i made some pasta with it. first of all one should never heat burrata, so i cooked my pasta (maccheroni to be precise) while i was preparing a rough pesto with pine seeds, fresh basil and black pepper.. then i mashed a burrata (you can use a fork or a mixer.. burrata is already quite soft, but in this way it gets a nice mousse-like texture).
so i mixed pasta with my pesto, took everything off the heat, poured burrata stirring well and that's it! very nice pasta to eat in the summer :)
