If you ask a French person which is his or her favorite Italian cheese, he or she will almost certainly answer Burrata, which in the last years has become a real cult in the French gastronomical panorama. Burrata, produced in the province of Andria and Corato, is nothing else but Stracciatella protected by an external casing of thin spun paste, similar to fiordilatte cheese, made of cream mixed with milk enzymes and small scraps of mozzarella. It can be found in two versions, with the head (the wrapping closed with the traditional vizzo grass leaf) or without the head.
- Type: Pasta filata
- Texture: Melting
- Color: White
- Flavor: Natural, creamy and slightly acidulous
- Aroma: Candid, fresh cow's milk
Burrata is a sui generis cheese, as it is very often an ingredient of a recipe and also used in cooking; it is part of the family of "pasta filata" cheeses traditional of Southern Italy (among the many, mozzarella, provola, caciocavallo, etc.). Pasta filata cheeses are a pride of our gastronomic tradition, as well as a regret of the French, especially those based on buffalo milk. In fact many transalpine producers have tried to replicate this production technique, planting buffaloes, however without ever achieving good results.
Over the years, the Guffanti family has specialized in the selection, aging and refinement of the best Italian and international dairy products: the experience gained with Gorgonzola, which remains the trademark, has gradually been transferred to all other types of cheese. After 5 generations, the attention for the artisan quality of the cheese product and the passion for an accurate refining continue to characterize the Guffanti-Fiori family, consolidated in our days as one of the best refiners in the world.
