The greatest ball of fire.Gather Journal Spiced Burrata Fireball with Charred Bread
A fireball sounds ominous (and, if you’re thinking of the college-age booze brand, then it probably is), but it’s really just a big and brilliant meteor sailing through the earth’s atmosphere until it burns up in a streak of bright light. We simulate the effect with a weighty orb of burrata, sparked by a trail of vadouvan and chile oil. Serve with charred, asteroid-like chunks of bread to scoop up its fiery bits.
Preheat oven to 525°F. Toss bread with oil and ¼ tsp salt. Toast bread, crust sides down, on a parchment-lined sheet pan until edges are charred, 9 to 11 minutes.
Place burrata in the center of a large, shallow bowl. Sprinkle parsley around base. Combine vadouvan and honey and smear a generous ring around burrata. Score the top of cheese in a spiral. Pour cream over top and drizzle with chile oil. Serve with charred bread.
