    Hi,

    This was just merged into an earlier thread on burrata. Back when this topic originated, it was not as easy to find as today.

    I buy from Costco as well as from Caputo's (in Lake Forest).

    Regards,

    Farmers market asparagus, lightly marinated portobello w/garlic run under the broiler. Top with burrata, another spin in the broiler, done. Eat, enjoy, repeat

    Looks great but I think I would have been making my next meal while I was still eating that one! :lol:

    Agree, a little on the light side. What's not pictured are pre dinner "snacks" of Steak Chips, plus regular beef jerky and leftover Joseph's porterhouse. :) Cubed quarter of watermelon with Maldon, lime juice and gochugaru for dessert.

    Big fan of burrata for quick meals, especially now that fresh basil is right out the back door. While not equal to shade grown water buffalo burrata teleported from Italy BelGioioso from Wisconsin is ~fine/tasty~ easily accessible and costs a Lot Less. I buy at Restaurant Depot, half the cost of retail grocers.

    Created in the 1920s under the shade of a castle in Italy’s Apulia region, burrata was born out of a need to minimise food waste and is a delicious example of human ingenuity

    Although I haven't been in a while the Mozzarella Store's burrata is a very good example. Not the best I've ever had but pretty good (made locally at their facility in Warren, Indiana). It's also ridiculously easy to make at home (about an hour, start to finish), but much like beef jerky it disappears more quickly than you can make it.

    Further random burrata thoughts: Tempesta Market sells imported Italian burrata (and buffalo mozzarella). They each run around $8-$9 for a smallish ball, but they are a nice fix during tomato season given how hard it is to find real fresh mozzarella around here.

    IMHO the best imported burrata can be found at Spaccanapoli. Not cheap but wonderful.
