It seems that this cheese was put on the earth purely to entertain and delight with it's delicate flavour and super creaminess.
If you want to impress friends, have a special meal or just sit down for an impromptu luxurious lunch for absolutely no reason, this little fella is for you.
Similar to a Mozzarella ball but with a creamier texture, Burrata/Burratina (small version) is such as treat that traditionally it was served as a dessert. Now it is common as a savoury course too. It consists of layers of cow's milk cheese that give way to a soft centre of Stracciatella cheese which is pulled mozzarella curds mixed with cream.
It likes to be served simply drizzled with oil and scattered with salt and black pepper
- Serve with flat breads - we love the Lingue Classico for a light dish - or the baked flat bread for a more substantial serving.
- Oven roast some tasty tomatoes - sit the Burratina on top
- Drizzle with truffle oil - or shaving of the real deal, pop on top of spicy salad leaves
Cow’s milk – fresh. From Puglia.

Who delivers the products?
For local customers we drop in person and further afield we use APC. We chose them to support our local hub in Frome and they give brilliant customer service and have a 98%+ delivery on time record.
Where do you deliver?
We deliver across the UK except Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.
What is the delivery charge?
We charge £6.99 for delivery which covers part of the cost of couriers. We cover the remaining charge and cost of the environmentally sustainable packaging.
Do I need to be in for delivery?
If you are not in when the delivery arrives the order can be left in a safe place if you leave a note for the driver on the door.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
We ship to you in boxes that are made from 95% recycled cardboard in a carbon neutral manufacturing process.
We use Wool liners to wrap the chilled components of your order. These liners contain one of nature’s best insulators - sheep’s wool! This can then be added to your compost and the outer liner put in with your plastic, or if you do not compost at home they quickly biodegrade in your waste.
Our chilled ice bricks are water which you can pour safely down the sink and recycle the plastic, however, why not reuse them yourself or give to friends to make use of?
You will notice our food containers are printed with a message informing you it is fully compostable, either at home or again if they head into general waste they will quickly biodegrade.
Our little sample pots are made from sugar pulp and our deli pots are also recyclable.
I live in Somerset surrounded by farm land, green space and wonderful woodland walks. However there is very limited access to speciality foods and nice delis.
Bristol is my original home town and during visits I shop at the lovely Italian deli's around the city. After serving a group of friends barbecued toasties containing the spicy Italian Nduja sausage, I started getting requests for me to pick up Nduja when I next went to Bristol!
Eventually I decided to make the business official and I live on a street called Little London, so Little London Deli was born in early 2021. My home is now full of freshly baked bread, chocolate Torta and a LOT of packing boxes!
With the support of a very small and lovely team the business has now expanded and we enjoy bringing Italian foods to those that love it much further afield than just my little Somerset village.
We look forward to 'meeting' you :)
Nicola and 'Team Deli'
