The Top 100 List: #38 St Kilians Cheese Shop “Burrata”


St. Kilian’s Cheese Shop “Burrata”

Location: Highlands

Rating: 7 (out of 10)

The Skinny: Ok, I cheated a little here.  Both St Kilian’s and Osteria Marco offer Frank Bonanno’s Burrata, and St. Killians doesn’t carry the amazing cheese outside of the summer months, so… off to the Osteria I went.

The dish is definitely a showcase of the cheese.  Served naked, except for a few slices of toasted and oiled bread on the side, the statement is made: “other cheeses may need to dress up with fruits and jams, but not this one”.  And they’re right.  On its own, it is at it’s very best.  The cheese is composed of a thin bubble of mozzarella on the outside, which wraps up the milky soft ricotta on the inside.  Once punctured, the ricotta escapes in tiny creamy pearls, spreading smoothly over the bread or directly in my mouth.  This is the best that moz and ricotta get.

Now…If only I liked moz and ricotta as much as I love blue cheese and brie.  Regardless, Frank Bonanno strikes again!

    i know i have to be reading this wrong – long days in front of the ovens and all – but what i THINK i just read is “st. kilian’s is owned by frank bonnano”. this is absolutely not true. hugh and ionah would be very surprised to know that their shop that they’ve babied for several years now is actually owned by someone else!

  • Ionah de Freitas Says:

    Wow! Please get your facts straight before you go to print. St. Kilian’s (one “l” only please) has been owned by Hugh O’Neill and Ionah de Freitas since 2001 and it still is! We would greatly appreciate an acknowledgment of your error in your next issue.

    Kind regards, Ionah de Freitas

  • Hugh O'Neill Says:

    Not only did you get the facts wrong— your spelling is atrocious. Marco is with two “R’s” and Frank Banana allegedly sold his interest in Marrco.
    It is now owned by St.Kilians.
    Please correct this by next year or at your latest convenience.
    Regwards, Hugh O’Neill

    Wow – well you guys certainly got me on that one. Will make the change ASAP. Don’t quite know how I got that confused – everyone is human. My apologies.

    Thanks for the post, Hugh… I believe “satire” is spelled with one “r” as well.

    Ionah – guess we should all get our facts straight, right? This blog is not affiliated with Denver magazine, so any revisions I make won’t go in the next “issue” or should have been researched before “going to print”.

    After this, we have the website auditor as one of the SEO tools included in this search
    engine software. An easy to use template for developing a
    project charter is available in the Project Managment Media Gallery.

    Using a keyword too many times can be as bad as not using
    it at all, so the percentage result of a keyword density check is a huge help to all
