M&S launches its first ever burrata cheese

The UK heatwave has arrived just in time for National Picnic Week – which means people will be hitting parks and beauty spots with an assortment of edible goodies.

In perfect time, M&S has just brought out a must-have picnic essential – a deliciously creamy burrata.

Whether you like it with tomatoes, alongside a hunk of crusty bread or drizzled with oil, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the decadent cheese.

The supermarket’s first ever burrata ball is priced at £2.75 for 150g.

Made from cow’s milk, the cheese features an outer shell made from solid mozzarella, while the inside is a combination of stracciatella and cream.

Burrata originated in the Apulia region in Southern Italy and has since become one of the country’s most beloved cheeses – mainly for its rich taste and unusual, soft texture.

It seems M&S was fully prepared for National Picnic Week, as burrata isn’t the only new product hitting stores.

The supermarket has also launched a new range of picnic accompaniments, including pickled red onions, pickled spiced cauliflower and carrot and ginger relish – all priced between £1 and £1.50 per jar.

It’s also brought out a new kind of fruit to spice up UK picnics – a ‘limelon.’

As the name suggests, the limited edition hybrid fruit tastes like a melon with a hint of lime and is priced at £3 per piece.

Pret has also just launched three new food platters – perfect for summer picnics.

There are three to choose from, with a smoked salmon and avocado platter, a Ploughman’s platter and a humous and crudités platter – and all are designed to be shared between two.
