Burrata appears on a lot of menus these days, but MC Kitchen may be the only Miami restaurant stuffing the creamy hand-pulled mozzarella with seasonal ingredients like butternut squash in winter and sweet peas in summer. “The most important factor is that it has to be something delicate that can be puréed to a smooth and silky texture,” says chef Marino. “It needs to impactful, yet lend a subtle flavor that doesn’t overpower the cheese.”
