If you’ve never had burrata cheese, this weekend will be your chance to have this life altering cheese change your life for the better.

Chef Michael Ellis is bringing a juicy burger and some burrata to the WindsorEats patio this weekend. Native to the Windsor area, chef Michael Ellis has over 15 years’ experience in the hospitality industry, ranging from high end and high-volume restaurants, fine dining, hotels, and private clubs.

We’re so excited about the menu Chef Michael will be serving up on our patio. Here are all the details you need to know:

What is Burrata Cheese?

Simply put, it’s fresh mozzarella cheese stuffed with creamy, buttery cheese. Basically, it’s heaven in your mouth. Chef Michael will be serving it with compressed melon, crispy prosciutto, jalapeno vinaigrette, shaved fennel, and herb salad.

Watch the video above (warning: keep a napkin handy to wipe up the drool).
