You'll need

60 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 beetroot (about 300gm in total), coarsely grated 70 ml verjuice 50 ml balsamic vinegar For shallow-frying: vegetable oil ¼ cup (loosely packed) rosemary 4 burrata (about 200gm each) To serve: extra-virgin olive oil and vincotto

Method

  • 01
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over high heat until it begins to sizzle, then add beetroot, season to taste and stir occasionally to coat well (2-3 minutes). Add verjuice and balsamic vinegar, and simmer until liquid almost evaporates but beetroot still has a slight crunch (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat and cool slightly (10-15 minutes).
  • 02
  • Heat 1cm-deep vegetable oil in a small saucepan until it starts to shimmer, add rosemary and stir until crisp (2-3 minutes; be careful as hot oil will spit). Drain on paper towels.
  • 03
  • Pile beetroot onto a platter or separate plates, place burrata on top, drizzle generously with extra-virgin olive oil and vincotto, and finish with a scattering of fried rosemary leaves.

Note Seek out excellent burrata for this recipe. The kitchen at Berta uses the handmade burrata, made weekly, from That's Amore in Melbourne.
