Puglia’s most celebrated cheese, Burrata is made exclusively from cow’s milk and consists of an outer bomb-shaped shell of mozzarella encasing an almost decadent fresh cream core. Burrata is usually wrapped in Asphodelus leaves, which reflect its freshness. The leaves last about as long as the burrata – 3 to 4 days. Fresh leaves are a sign of fresh cheese, while withered leaves indicate that the burrata is past its prime. Serve on its own with a sprinkle of salt and Puglian EVOO or with fresh tomatoes and basil as well. And per l’amor di Dio, DO NOT EVER COOK IT! Buon appetito!
