Stracciatella is a fresh cow's milk cheese, a traditional specialty of Puglia in southern Italy. It is made with whole fresh cream and cheese strands. It is nothing more or less than the creamy part of the burrata, the greediest part, the one with which the mozzarella is garnished. It consists of mozzarella threads (straccia) and cream. The taste is therefore sweet and very creamy. A wonderful cream cheese that is served as a starter with salad or ham.
