Savoury recipe - Burrata and butternut squash in different textures

For this recipe, I opted for butternut squash and its buttery flavor, worked in several textures: creamy puree, crunchy pan-fried and crunchy with pumpkin seeds. The cooked wine is there to keep with the season.

Deliberately keep the squash purée and poêlée warm. This contrasts perfectly with the burrata and brings out the flavors of the preparations. Enjoy with a nice slice of toasted brown bread.
