Smoked burrata is a tasty alternative to the classic burrata pugliese: a fresh and stretched-curd cheese, very similar to mozzarella but with a very soft and creamy heart.
Murgella smoked burrata has a more intense flavour compared to the traditional burrata. The natural smoking process gives it a typical smoke flavour, in contrast with its creamy heart, but perfect to be tasted as it is or included in other recipes.
One of the best ways to taste smoked burrata is to warm it up on a piece of traditional bread, paired with tomatoes, which create a perfectly balanced and unforgettable meal, thanks to their exceptional freshness.
In 2014 Murgella smoked burrata won a bronze medal at the World Cheese Awards, the only prize in the soft/semi soft cheese category.
Because of the absence of animal rennet, our smoked burrata has been certified as a vegetarian product by the “Associazione Italiana Vegetariana” (The Italian Vegetarian Association).
