Italian Eatery

Burrata
Burrata with fresh tomatoes and basil

We had a wonderful Italian meal last night that began with Carpaccio and Burrata.  It so reminded me of the walking trip I took in Umbria a couple of years ago.  The region is very well known for their cured meats and I remember many beautiful plates of meats, cheeses and crusty breads consumed of course with a nice bottle of red wine.

I don’t know that I have actually had Burrata before but it was so creamy and delicious that I had to find out more.   Our waiter said that Burrata is the creamiest part of the mozzarella.  But I also found a recipe stating that Burrata is mozzarella with a creamy center.  You can find a recipe to make your own Burrata on the Sunday Suppers blog  http://sunday-suppers.com/how-to-make-homemade-burrata/

 

With these wonderful appetizers we hardly needed dinner although we did enjoy salmon smothered in a light creamy tomato sauce and a perfectly cooked filet mignon.  If you are looking for a family owned authentic Italian meal in the South Bay, I would highly recommend A Bellagio in downtown Campbell.
