Frequently Asked Questions

How many servings does this recipe make?

This recipe is a simple guide to show you the ingredients and ways to build the perfect burrata board. The amounts of each ingredient will depend on the size board or platter you are using. For this recipe, I used a 12-inch diameter board which yields 4-6 servings.

How is burrata traditionally served?

Burrata is often served simply with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Scoop it up with chunks of bread or spread the soft cheese onto crackers. The mild, creamy flavor of burrata also pairs well with summer fruit like fresh berries, melon, and stone fruits.

What temperature should burrata cheese be served?

I find it best to serve burrata cheese at room temperature or slightly warm from being placed atop hot dishes, like pasta or pizzas. However, it will be just as delicious straight out of the fridge.

What is the difference between mozzarella and burrata?

While mozzarella has a more delicate taste and a more elastic texture, burrata is softer and more flavorful. Both cheeses are similarly made from cow’s milk, but because of the cream in burrata, it is higher in calories.
