Burrata, Berries, Badassery

For the first time in a long time I found myself with a weekend all to myself. Roommates were either out of town or busy, and I actually didn’t have to work. Given my skimpy budget, I had to make do with minimal groceries – but I did have enough to treat myself to some severely sick ovo-lacto vegetarian decadence. Some of you may be unaware of this, but I generally don’t like sweet desserts. This, however, is something I can get behind.

On Friday I’d visited Andrew’s Cheese shop (review coming Friday, after a follow up visit) and picked up, among other items, a pound of fresh Burrata.

For those of you who don’t know:

Burrata cheese is more a variety of mozzarella than anything else – its a thin Mozzarella sack filled with cream and bits of, you guessed it, more mozzarella. It is quite hard to find, so should you be so lucky, run home with some crusty bread and some balsamic vinegar, for you are in for a treat.

So i’d already been eating my burrata on italian loaf with a balsamic glaze when it occurred to me to try this out. Very simple, and very delicious.

The Pieces

1/2 cup each of blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries

1/2 pound Burrata cheese

High quality clover honey

The Puzzle

I’m not even putting steps here, its that simple –

Cheese, honey, berries, mix. Love me sexy.

For some intense variety I can also recommend a balsamic reduction be drizzled over the top, but thats really up to you

o fuck yea. iPhone camera FTW.
