One of the many benefits of having so many sisters is that they all have their special talents. My youngest sister just happens to have worked at Murray’s Cheese Shop for a summer so she is our resident “cheese monger”. Why having a cheese monger as a sister is not only a great conversation starter, but she has also introduced us to so many new cheeses! Enter Burrata. The ooey-gooey, oh-so-delicious cousin to mozzarella. And self proclaimed “top cheese to try before you die”. Pair that with the best jersey tomatoes and you’ve got yourself an indulgent dish.
Recipe: Layer heirloom tomatoes and basil on a platter. Drop the burrata in the middle then slice down the middle to release the goey goodness. Drizzle with olive. Sprinkle top with salt and freshly ground pepper. Serve.
