A perfect blend of mozzarella and cream always brings a delightful experience to the dinner table. Imagine a cow milk cheese appearing in a soft, smooth, fresh texture of rich cream when cut in slices. Seems quite delicious, right?
It is delicious; yes, burrata is delicious! A cheese wrapped with a solid creamy shell is known as the Italian burrata sensation by people. Inside it contains stracciatella and cream, which gives it a smooth texture. It was first produced in the nineteenth century and has been a prevalent food in Italy. Especially in the area of Murgia, this particular cheese is considered a staple of the culinary traditions.
Spun by the artisan of Murgia, Burrata is made of the milk of cow. The cow locally grazed in the heel of cattle provides full-bodied, rich, creamy milk. Later the artisans process it into flavoursome cheese.
The smooth, creamy texture is what makes the Italian burrata cheese special
How is Burrata Made?
The process of making Italian burrata starts with heating the raw milk. The steps are:
Slowly add rennet and curdle the milk.
Once the curdle is perfectly formed, it is dropped in hot whey and left to blend flexibly.
Further, the artisan expertly pulls and weaves the card to get the consistency of stretched curd cheese.
Finally, when the desired texture is attained, it transforms into a soft pouch of mozzarella and cream, and it is ready to serve.
