Wow! I could look at the man making burrata for hours. He stands in the shop window and without losing concentration he fills a little pouch of mozzarella with a mix of fresh cream and minced mozzarella, ties it carefully up with a green straw and starts with the next one. I had never bought cheese that fresh before!
The fresher, the better! Without using preservatives, burrata has to be eaten within the next two or three days. No problem for me: by only adding some rucola, sliced cherry tomatoes and olive oil, I can serve a fancy appetizer.
The counter is filled with my favourites – how do they know? Focaccia with tomatoes, lasagna, cheese, pasta, desserts, all fresh and homemade! The few tables at the back of the shop are taken so I have to come back to eat in. I already know what I’m going to order, the panini caprese was calling my name…
I’ll be back!
