Stracciatella is a creamy specialty of Caseificio Maldera and is characterized by a semi-liquid consistency made of frayed mozzarella dipped in fresh cream.
Puglia is known all over the world as the native land of burrata, whose heart resides right in stracciatella.
In fact, this dairy product represents the most distant and versatile ancestor of burrata.
It was born indeed at the beginning of the 1900s in a way to avoid the waste of residues coming from the processing of mozzarella.
Tradition gives birth to a product that never loses its flavour and that satisfies everyone's tastes.
Being characterized by a delicate culinary expression, stracciatella is perfect in combination with savoury or spicy ingredients: it is ideal to soften stronger flavours.
This dairy product goes perfectly with anchovies, Genoese pesto or fresh tomatoes.
A salty, strong or acidic taste appear to be the best combinations for an extraordinary dish.
