The term mozzarella derives from the verb to cut, to cut with the hands the Cheese mozzarella when it is still warm so as to form some balls like the beloved mozzarella.

Making the Stracciatella
Stracciatella is the luxurious filling of heavy cream and shards of fresh mozzarella.
The first step is to make a little mozzarella (you’re going to end up ripping it to pieces for the filling, so
consider this part of the process a blessedly low-stakes test run for later).
Add enough boiling water to submerge the curds; I just use a ladle to scoop the water out of a pasta
pot. With a large metal or wooden spoon, start stirring and pressing the curds together until they
cohere into a solid mass. The goal is to smush and stretch and fold the curd until there are no lumps
or tears and it looks smooth and glossy. If you just wanted to make mozzarella, you’d pinch this into a ball, put it in some cold water, and call it a day.
But who just wants mozzarella when you could have mozzarella filled with more mozzarella and whipping cream? Thought so. Stretch the hot mozzarella into a rope and tear it into thin strands like string cheese; the smaller you make them, the more cream they’ll absorb, which is what you want, so take your time).
You can leave those strands as is, rip them into little shreds, or even chop them with a knife. Toss them in a bowl, pour in most of the heavy cream, and (if you’re like me and salt your instant ramen) add more salt. Full disclosure (at the risk of undermining this entire article), eating stracciatella out of the bowl with a spoon like it’s goddam Cheerios is one of life’s greatest pleasures, so if you choose to get off at that
stop, I won’t be one to judge.
Alternatively, if you wanted to make flavored burrata, you could add things like truffle oil, pesto, or, um, chocolate milk to the mixture. Enter at your own risk.
