Fresh mozzarella cheese is a semi-soft Italian cheese made from cow or water buffalo milk. Burrata cheese takes the mozzarella one step further — it is mozzarella that’s formed into a pouch and then filled with soft, stringy curd and cream. Burrata literally translates into “buttered,” which acts as a sneak peek into its rich flavor.
Burrata is a typical product of Murgia in the south of Italy. Burrata may have origins dating back to about 1900 made from Bianchini brothers (Lorenzo and Vincenzo) farm in the city of Andria within Murgia, an area in the Apulian region.
