I was delighted on Friday to find Burrata in my local Waitrose. A cheese very similar to mozzarella but with a soft, melty middle. Delicious!!!
I wasn’t sure how to serve it this time, the last time we ate Burrata, it was high summer and being a stunning hot, sunny day we served it natural with crispy pancetta, lemon and olive oil and it was amazing.
So with winter in full swing and wanting something a bit warmer I settled for baking it. My son Oliver loves baked Camembert, he has been known to get home from school and eat some as a snack so I was sure he would like this cheese too.
All you need to do is freeze the Burrata for a few hours, wrapped up well.
Bake some plum tomatoes (I used baby) cut in half, chopped fresh thyme and rosemary, garlic, black pepper, sea salt and olive oil for about 1 hour.
Needless to say it didn’t last long…
