Burrata, Gioia

Burrata is a classic Italian "pasta filata" cheese that is made by enclosing a center of soft, silky curd in a small sac of mozzarella. The result is a decadent treat that fully showcases the flavor of the milk. The cheese is best eaten within a few days of production, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper.

Our burrata is from Gioia, a family creamery in Los Angeles that specializes in Italian cheeses made from Vito Girardi's family recipes. The cheese is made by hand daily.
