Stracciatella

Stracciatella

Italian for “little shreds.” When it comes to cheese, this refers to the extra scraps of fresh curd that result from the process of making mozzarella. Mozzarella is traditionally made in southern Italy, where the terroir leads animals to give a rich, sweet milk. Not wanting to let good cheese go to waste, cheesemakers took these little shreds, put them in a pouch of mozzarella, topped them off with fresh cream and tied the pouch at the top. And just like that, burrata was born.
