What makes our Burrata di Andria PGI unique?
The expert hands of the dairymen do something magic: there is a specific procedure for creating the Burrata di Andria PGI which the masters of flavour of Caseificio Montrone know well and follow meticulously.
First, the Stracciatella is made by fraying the spun paste in an irregular way and dipping it in the cream.
Then the cheese pouch that envelops it takes shape: strong, resistant, and ready to be filled and tied with raffia.
This is how the famous “testa” is obtained, a distinctive feature of the authentic Burrata di Andria PGI: it is precisely this typical closure at the top that ensures the artisanal production of the burrata, prepared to perfection by the Montrone dairymen.
