Cooks Illustrated: Tasting Burrata
Lioni Burrata Con Panna wins the Burrata Taste Test..."bright tasting and nicely salted, with a thick luscious cream that Taster's loved. It was lauded for its "luxurious," pillowy texture and fresh dairy flavor—proving that it is possible to get high-quality burrata from the supermarket."
Cooks Illustrated: Tasting Fresh Mozzarella
What makes the best fresh mozzarella? It's all about balance. Lioni Mozzarella recommended as an all-around balanced cheese ..."tender but not too squishy" and "firm but not too dry." It had "the perfect amount of salt," and tasters also picked up on "grassy" notes of "cultured" milk (it uses cheese culture to acidify the curds). Its texture was "springy" and "soft," and we loved its "luxurious," "buttery" richness.
Lioni's Burata Con panna received an award at the 2018 ACS Annual Award Ceremony. The ACS brings light to American cheese makers by recognizing their talent and excellence within the industry.
