Burrata, Ti Amo

I can't even begin to tell you how much I love burrata, it wasn't a love at first bite situation, but a kind of love that grew over time. Burrata is from the Puglia region of Italy and is not a common cheese found in the UK and I have never been able to buy it in any supermarkets in London. The Italian supermarket 'Luigi' on Fulham Road stocks it sometimes. Therefore, whenever I see burrata on the menu anywhere, I always order it without fail. Cipriani and La Petit Maison do a great burrata starter if you ever have the craving.

The sign attracted me from outside the shop....
When I was in Paris last month I came across an Italian delicatessen that was selling fresh burrata so I went in and brought it back to London with me. There's nothing better than eating burrata, olive oil, and bread. So creamy, milky and so fresh. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  Back in London I couldn't wait to make this burrata salad for dinner.

This is how it looks in its packaging
At this point I was afraid it wouldn't taste as good cos it looks so hard on the outside....

And then I cut it open to reveal the gooey softness inside....

Cut it into small bite size pieces together with some cherry tomatoes and basil...

Drizzle some olive oil and salt...then voila! 

Happy :)
