Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Burrata with Basil and Tomatoes

When it comes to five minute summer appetizers this burrata with tomatoes and basil ranks high on the list, and the folks at Mablebrook Farms down in Bennington, VT, make it real easy.  Place your balls of burrata on your serving dish, slice open and split, add a generous pinch of kosher salt, a drizzle of your best extra virgin olive oil, a few chopped basil leaves, and some thinly sliced or chopped tomatoes, then serve with a sliced baguette.  For the creamiest texture pull your container of burrata out of the fridge an hour or two before serving.  Summer is here….enjoy!
