    In a small saucepan, combine the oil and garlic. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 mins or until the garlic is pale golden. Stir in the rosemary and cook, stirring frequently, for a further 20-30 secs or until garlic is crisp and golden and rosemary is crisp and aromatic. Using a slotted spoon, transfer garlic and rosemary to a plate. Set aside garlic oil to cool completely.

    Place the burrata or mozzarella in a wide shallow serving bowl. Split the burrata open or tear mozzarella into large pieces. Reserve 2 tbs garlic oil. Spoon remaining garlic oil over burrata or mozzarella and sprinkle with half the garlic and rosemary. Season.
