Burrata with Blue cheese
This is a new burrata and a variation of the classic one to offer our customers something new and surprising! Burrata is a spun paste fresh cheese, similar to mozzarella with a softer and stringier consistency. This cheese is typical of Murgia, a region in Puglia, and specifically from Corato (Bari). This is a sweet, buttery cheese with white skin is that is smooth and glossy. Diced spicy DOP Gorgonzola is mixed with the stretchy strings of paste that are inside it. This burrata is hand made from beginning to end.

Weight: approximately 350g.
Packing: plastic food bag, externally decorated with green leaves.
Shelf life of packed product: 9 days.
ALLERGENS: MILK and MILK protein
SHAPE: looks like a small pear, tied at the top end to keep the stuffing inside.
EXTERNAL FEATURES: this cheese has a distinctive porcelain white appearance with a glossy skin.
INTERNAL FEATURES: when a burrata is cut in half, a creamy white liquid and the mozzarella strings along with the diced marbled cheese, which is pale straw-yellow to blue-green (the Gorgonzola), pour out of the little bundle.
ODOR: strong scents of butter and milk as well as the typical mushroom smell.
FLAVOUR: balanced, savoury and slightly spicy, the paste is oily and rich in fat, the intense Gorgonzola scents are clearly perceived yet they are softened by the sweetness of both the cream and “stracciatella” (stringy bits of dough).
Availability: all year, but must be ordered.
Food pairing: this new combination is a “must try”. It is excellent with a great range of pairings, both raw and in the preparation of warm first course dishes.
Wine pairing: best if served with the wines from where it is produced, like Primitivo di Manduria or Moscato di Trani.
