For the hitherto uninitiated, an heirloom tomato is an open-pollinated, non-hybrid cultivar of tomato. They usually have a shorter shelf life and are less disease-resistant than hybrids. Grown for a variety of reasons including food, historical interest, access to wider varieties, and by people who wish to save seeds from year to year. Taste is king, of course, and is enhanced brilliantly in this dish with some velvety burrata to go with it.

The cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream has been making waves on the internet for several months now. With a solid cheese outer casing, the inside contains Stracciatella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture. There’s nothing more satisfying than running a knife effortlessly through the cheese, revealing all of its melty delicious goodness. Typically associated with Murgia in Italy, the cheese has a rich, buttery flavour and retains its fresh taste.

With Chef Ravish at the helm, Westin Goa makes its burrata fresh in-house, of course. Best eaten within 24 hours, the sourness from the carved seeds of heritage tomatoes cuts the mild richness of the cheese and is an instant salivation machine. With the addition of sharpness and nuttiness from the curated pesto, it’s just the perfect appetizer for your Republic Day get together.
