Get 'Em While You Can: Fresh Burrata

We're super excited to announce that at this week's warehouse tastings we'll have a limited and exceptional batch of fresh burrata available--and when we say exceptional, we really mean it. In the words of our friend and Twitter follower @Que_Linda, "I think it's made from baby dreams and unicorn shavings."

Burrata is a relative of mozzarella. In fact, it's basically mozzarella stuffed with mozzarella--the outer skin is the same pasta filata curd, and the filling is a rough mix of unfinished curd and heavy cream. The producer, La Gioia from California, will make a batch for us on Thursday and it will arrive fresh on Friday. Burrata is very perishable. It lasts about five days, but once you try it we don't imagine you'll have any trouble eating it in time.

We got our hands on some samples last week and it would be no exaggeration to say that all the Dairymaids went nuts for it. The play of textures, the salt content, its milky white--all of it was absolutely perfect. So please come by during our normal hours on Friday and Saturday and try it for yourself.
