Burrata.

Say it again. Roll the "Rs" this time. Giada-style. Ooh yeah, that's the stuff.

Burrata is kind of like mozzarella, in the same way Moët & Chandon is kind of like André. Burrata is like mozzarella except that instead of being made by an angel like our own Paula Lambert, one can only assume that actual angels make this stuff. OK, Paula makes burrata too, but I'm trying to make a point here.

When you taste the burrata at Carbone's, where it's accompanied by chewy garlic bread and served simply with a drizzle of olive oil and a toss of sea salt, you just might want to bone it. Carbone it. In the face. Seriously -- your brain starts hearing Barry White and everything goes all slow motion-like and if you start to get a bit hot and/or bothered, it's totally normal.

You might want to take a second order home...

Say you're the type of person who likes her eggs cooked over medium (I am). You'll truly appreciate the delicate, custard-like texture of this heavenly cheese. If you're more of a scramble or omelet person, that's OK, but eat this cheese anyway.

It just might elicit an out-of-body experience. And if you're like me, an "I'll have what she's having" out of the table next to you.

You're totally right, Peacock. I had my bubbles flipped. Fixed! And I know it's mozz. Like those two bubbly drinks are both ... bubbles. I like the foie gras to liver analogy though. And now I'm hungry.

I could be mistaken but, assuming the author favors Burrata to traditional mozzarella, then logic would dictate that she also prefers Andre over Moët & Chandon.   Also, Burrata is mozzarella....mozzarella stuffed with unfinished curd and heavy cream, so perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Burrata is to mozzarella as foie gras is to chicken liver.

You were taught about champagne and cheese in your SAT review course? Incredible.

Ooh, good call. The burrata with garlic bread pictured above is $11 at Carbone's. They also sell the burrata in the store section, but I don't recall the price.

How come the Observer rarely puts the price on any items that are reviewed?  For $9 at Jimmy's you can purchase a large piece of Burrata.  Make your own garlic bread and that will stuff four people for dinner. You can purchase two year old Parmigiano-Reggiano  at Jimmy's for $9.99 or you can go to trendy Scardello's and pay $27 a pound. It seems as if most of the writers here celebrate paying as much as possible for stuff.
