How to Make Burrata

Maui, Hawaii

While in Lahaina we visited David Paul’s Island Grill, it appeared it would be a normal lunch but Chef David Paul took us back into the kitchen to show us how to make burrata at home.

A adore burrata, I had it in Italy and could not stop talking about it, much to the detriment of the Hecks when I insisted they try it in Venice, and the cruelty is that it is so expensive to buy in Canada.

I am definitely making this when I get home.

  1. I cannot wait to eat said burrata! You can buy it at Alimento for an arm and a leg. On on Thursdays I think. Awesome cheese guy there.

      Everything Chef David Paul made was fantastic – can you believe he followed up with pork belly.

    It’s true on the mainland, too, about the current crop of farmers being in their 60s. I wrote a story about it a few years ago. One promising fact, though, is that a good number of younger folks and many women are now getting into farming. But the stumbling blocks, of course, are scarcity of land and the exorbitant prices of what ag land now fetches.
    So nice to meet you in Maui! I hope you are enjoying your time on the islands.

      Thanks Carolyn, it’s nice to see a trend moving toward agriculture. But you’re right there are a lot of hurdles, I can see it in Canada too where large commercial businesses are thriving but smaller, family operations are struggling.

    I had to look up what burrata is. I’ve not had it in Italy, but the real mozzarella di bufala is fabulous and I can only imagine how good burrata is. Delicious photo!

      Imagine the deliciousness of mozzarella di bufala and multiply it by 100 times.

  5. Burrata is absolutely my favorite cheese in the world. You just gave me big time cheese envy!

      I almost wish I had never had it for the first time, so cruel to be so delicious yet so expensive and hard to find.

    Campagnolo in Toronto makes a melted burrata. The best I’ve EVER had. We should get their secrets too!

      The first time I had burrata it was from Umbria, maybe Italian milk makes it so good.

  7. Nicole Delacroix says:

    Thanks for the inspiration. I am going to give this a try. I love burrata!

    1. Ayngelina Author says:

      I’m so excited to get home and try this too!

    Yum yum yum!!!!!!

  9. Yum! Yes, please! There’s something about watching people cook that I love too. 😀

    You had my at burrata! It is seriously one of my favorite things to eat. I crave it so much I’d make Gerard drive me to our favorite Italian restaurant back home just order that dish. Expensive but so worth it. Really want to try it in Italy. I’m sad I can’t get it here in Asia. 🙁

  11. We recently discovered that we can get hold of these beauties right here in little old Tarifa! The Italian guy who runs the local wine shop gets it shipped in every Friday.
    Happy, happy days 🙂

    Love this video. From the day we had burrata at the fantastic Keste Pizzeria in NYC’s West Village, I’ve been on a quest to learn how to make this amazing creation..What’s better than delicious cheese? Delicious, buttery cheese… Great post!

  13. I have never heard of this. I’m going to have to seek it out in Italy now!

  14. Mmmm burrata!! Weekend project! 😉

  15. How you’d get so lucky to go behind the scenes and see how it’s made?

  16. I think perhaps we are cursed. Another friend has told us about a Turkish dish that we “must” try, but everyone we’ve asked has no idea what we are talking about.

    Maybe it’s our pronounciation. We keep missing out on these “must have” foods!

    Yay! I can get onto site again! Holy nom, this looks delicious. I’ve seen burrata in a few of the local cheese shops, but now I need to have a huge plate of it.

      I was having so many issues with FatCow I had to change hosting providers, it was a nightmare.

      1. ehalvey says:

        Yikes! Glad you’re back up.

  18. I’m on a computer with no flash (don’t ask) so I can’t watch the video right now, but I just had to drop a note to say how fantastically yummy that food looks in the picture. I want some NOW!

  19. Alexandra says:

    Oh David Paul why did you have to do this to me! Must make ASAP!

    1. Ayngelina Author says:

      So so good!

  20. Great video! Thanks for sharing it! That buratta looks so yum!
