Have you ever had burrata? It’s a fabulous Italian cheese, fresh mozzarella filled with more mozzarella mixed with cream. To recap: cheese stuffed with cheese. And cream. It is utterly creamy and delicious, as are so many Italian things (see below.)

We had it as a salad tonight with juicy little tomatoes bursting with tomato-ness. There were a number of those moaning type noises one hears when the food of the gods is passed around. Mmmm. Burrata.

  2. I'll be a bitch and brag that down the street is Casale, a lovely authentic Italian pizzeria with a mozzarella bar. With burrata and other lovely cheeses that I've yet to try but I'm certain are heavenly! (loved your description of tomatoes bursting with tomato-ness. Indeed!)

    I've seen burrata at Whole Foods.
