Solena Cheese

Stracciatella 8oz

Stracciatella cheese is a soft, creamy Italian cheese that is often described as the filling of Burrata. It originates from the Apulia region of Italy, the same region where burrata and mozzarella are traditionally made. Stracciatella cheese is made from a combination of heavy cream, and strands of torn mozzarella sheets.
The cheese's name is derived from the Italian word "stracciare," meaning "to shred" or "to tear." This is a reference to the way the cheese is crafted, as the mozzarella curd is carefully torn or shredded and then mixed with fresh cream to create its signature texture. The result is a luscious and creamy cheese with a delicate, milky flavor.
This cheese is often used as a filling for pasta, where its creamy interior adds a luxurious touch to dishes. It is also commonly paired with ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, and a drizzle of high-quality olive oil for a simple yet sublime flavor combination.
While stracciatella cheese shares similarities with burrata, it is distinct in its own right, offering a delightful combination of creamy richness and delightful textures. Its indulgent nature has made it a beloved component of many Italian dishes and a standout offering in the world of artisanal cheeses.
