Every once in a while a product surfaces that is hyped to death. To me Burrata is one of them. It has been talked about a lot recently and when it was on sale at my local supermarket today I thought I’d give it a try.

I researched Burrata a little and apparently it is best served with a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper. I added cucumber and tomato and a dash of balsamic vinegar.


It tasted okay but I don’t really see what all the fuss is about. It was not that different from mozzarella.
I also made figs wrapped in parma ham. A tasty favourite of mine. I simply criss cross the figs, stuff some goat’s cheese in the middle, add a tiny drizzle of honey and then wrap each fig in a slice of parma ham.

After 10 minutes at 180C the figs were cooked to perfection.


Fantastic! I will do the figs again anytime. Not too sure about the burrata…
