Author Notes

I have always liked the idea of cheese courses and I am one to order a cheese course when offered. This one I use as a dessert but is also good for breakfast or maybe with some arugula as a light lunch. I have been wanting to try burrata for a long time and low and behold I am finally getting the chance. If you don't know burrata it is fresh mozzarella wrapped around fresh mozz curd and cream. My Cheese lady, who I was lucky enough to teach as a student in culinary school, told me it is mozzarella crack and I can do nothing but agree. Everything in this recipe compliments each other and brings forward all the flavors of each ingredient. - thirschfeld —thirschfeld
