We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new size of our renowned burrata! Originally offered in 8oz and 4oz sizes, Maplebrook has now released a unique 2oz size that we have named Burratini. The 2oz Burratini is packaged in an 8oz container of sea salt brine, with four pieces per container.
The head of Maplebrook’s burrata team, Domenico Marchitelli, is a native of Puglia, Italy, the region where burrata originated. Marchitelli has trained a team at Maplebrook, and cases of burrata leave the plant daily, seemingly minutes after being made.
We developed the Burratini after receiving feedback and suggestions from chefs, who wanted to create dishes with a single, whole burrata ball. Maplebrook’s burrata team went to work, testing a variety of configurations that would meet our standards for flavor, texture, aesthetics, and shelf life. We settled on 2oz pieces, and think they are just perfect for individual dishes, whether served on salad, pizza, pasta, or even dessert!
