Spaghetti with burrata and roasted cherry tomatoes

Burrata is a delicious fresh Italian cheese composed by mixing mozzarella and cream.
The outer layer is a thin and firm shell of mozzarella, on the other hand the inside is a doughy and tender mixture, called stracciatella, made with fresh cream and mozzarella’s snippets. This cheese was created in the Southern regions of Italy, known for farming and agriculture.

Now the burrata is easily sourced in many cities outside Italy; in Copenhagen you will find it at Eataly store or made by La treccia.

Sbrisolona tart – Crumbly tart

This week’s recipe comes from the city where my daughter was born in, the beautiful city of Mantova. I prepare this tart very often, being related to many fond memories and even because it is very simple and genuine.

The name “Sbrisolona” comes from the local dialect and it means crumbly.
According to the local tradition, this tart is served by breaking it into pieces, together with a cup of coffee or dipped into a sweet dessert wine.

There are many versions of the Sbrisolona but the following recipe is the original, the one I brought with me from Mantova, already 11 years ago.
