What’s the Difference Between Mozzarella and Burrata?
Fresh mozzarella and burrata are two types of semi-soft Italian cheeses. They’re both creamy, white, and utterly delicious. With just a quick glance, these cheeses look similar, but they are different in all the best ways. Fresh mozzarella cheese is made from cow’s or water buffalo’s milk with a firm but elastic texture. You can slice and it will hold its shape.

Dinner Party Recipe: Braised Shredded Beef in Tomatoes & Red Wine
When I think about throwing a dinner party, especially a big one like this polenta supper I’m sharing with you this week, my thoughts immediately go to: What can I make ahead? Last week, I had an easy answer: a shredded, succulent mess of beef braised in red wine and tomatoes, falling apart in its juices. It’s a terrific make-ahead dish, since like most braises, this beef gets better overnight, and takes all the stress of a main dish off your hands entirely. Sound good?

Recipe: Breakfast Pizza
Breakfast pizza — have you ever tried it? No, this is not cold pizza from the fridge on a Saturday morning (not that there’s anything wrong with that either!). Hot and crispy homemade pizza, with handfuls of herbs and scoops of soft ricotta cheese, topped with an oozing egg — this is a breakfast in its own right. Saturday morning we were crunched for time but we needed to put a hot breakfast on the table; it was a long day and fruit and toast wouldn’t do.

Cheesy Pasta Recipe: Fusilli al Telefono
We love the looks of just about every recipe in Pasta Sfoglia (see our review here). But we decided to reprint one of the simplest, most elemental recipes in the book: Fusilli al Telefono. Pasta cooked with a simple homemade sauce of tomatoes and basil, with an entire pound of fresh whole milk mozzarella folded in until it melts and runs off the pasta like gooey strings. Yum yum. We would like a plate of this right now please!

Pasta Recipe: Sausage & Fennel Ragù
My husband likes nothing more than a good ragù. His perfect meal would involve something saucy, bright, and rich with a bit of meat, falling over a dish of toothsome pasta. A good ragù is nearly a religious experience for him. It expresses the ultimate goodness of the world, a place where people feed one another good food in love and honesty.

We went to the market and treasure-hunted for fresh organic fennel, pink Cara Cara oranges, juicy scarlet blood oranges, and artisan-cured black olives.
