I get really excited about composing a great meal spontaneously, using only what I have on hand. This recipe came together on a recent Sunday afternoon while I was perusing the pantry and mulling over what I could design for dinner in under 30 minutes. I liken that sort of culinary exploration to a fashionista who creates new clothing combinations with basic items that they already have in their closet. It may appear to have a unique flavor or appearance, but it’s assembled by challenging yourself to work with what you’ve got.

Burrata cheese has a beautiful essence about it. It is a fresh Italian cheese made from water buffalo and/or cows milk mozzarella and has a center filled with a rich and silky cream. It is also my latest culinary obsession. It’s common knowledge among my family and friends that I love cheese, all types of cheese but Burrata has a metamorphic quality that I find very provocative. I cannot say no.
