Let me start from the beginning! I first heard about burrata whilst listening to a fantastic podcast about food called off menu. The guest suggested they wanted burrata as part of their meal and I didn't have a clue what it was! Well, I did a bit of research and this gooey unctuous gorgeous cheese came up. I managed to find it after some searching as things can be hard to find up here in the north east of England. Anyway, I tried it and thought it would go perfect with a lovely cracker bread as that double cream goodness is calling out to be dipped into. That's when I thought about these fresh, zingy, savoury crisp crackers, after a bit of tweaking, these ended up perfect.

  • Resting is really important to allow for proper gluten structure
  • Don't allow it to get too dark otherwise they'll turn too bitter.
