Truffled Burrata with Truffle Perlage and a summerly tomato salad

Truffle marinated burrata and tomato salad – by Teresa Välimäki

Teresa Välimäki, one of our favourite chefs, created a delicious summer dinner for Alpen Edelweiß after receiving a “mystery box” product package from us. Our summer theme has been delicious dinners at the summer cabin, where you have time and the best possible environment to enjoy good food. Teresa accepted the challenge and created a fabulous meal with our truffle mayonnaise, preserved truffles, hazelnuts and truffle pearls. This burrata tomato salad recipe uses Trifulè preserved truffles and Tartuflanghe Perlage truffle pearls. The recipe can be found at the end of the article.

Burrata is a creamy fresh cheese with a fat content of up to 44-60%. Its creaminess makes it ideal for salads, pasta, pizza or even risotto. Like mozzarella, it is packed in brine. It can be eaten whole or sliced. Burrata is also excellent on bread. Burrata is often served with pungent herbs, pesto varieties or strong flavoured dishes, because although its own flavour is relatively mild or soft, it brings out the flavour of the other ingredients nicely.

In Teresa Välimäki’s recipe, the tasty burrata is marinated with truffle and served with a tomato salad and truffle pearls. Our absolute favourite!

Wine recommendation Teresa’s own wine Viini[ni].
