I love all kinds of cheeses: from blue cheese to cottage to cheddar. And some time ago I discovered a delicious Italian cheese called burrata.
It tastes and lookes like mozzarella di bufala, but the diference is that when you cut it, you are surprised by a very soft cheese that melts in your mouth - that's the reason for the name burrata: Italian word for butter.
My suggestion is to eat it as an appetizer with drizzles of a very good extra virgin olive oil, salt, tomato and bread or, at most, a green salad. Don't dice, slice or mix it with the food, otherwise it will lose its charm, texture and flavor.
