My favourite cheese. I wasn’t sure what to expect but if you like feta, this is 100X better.

Ricotta Salata Cheese

The Facts

Country: Italy
Milk Pasteurized sheep
Age: 3 months+

Tasting Notes:

Ricotta Salata Cheese, from Sicily, is an Italian cheese made from the whey of sheep's milk, which is pressed, salted, and aged for at least 3 months. 

Unlike its younger counterpart Ricotta, Ricotta Salata has a crumbly texture, thanks to the pressing and ageing, which causes the cheese to lose moisture. The texture evolves into something closer to an aged feta.

Also unlike a young Ricotta, Ricotta Salata has a salty flavour, and a wide variety of uses.

Because of its texture, it can be cubed, sliced, grated, shaved, or simply crumbled. Use it in salads, atop soups, or anywhere you might use feta.

 

Our cheese mongers hand cut every cheese to order. We will always try to cut the exact weight ordered, however your piece might be slightly over or under the amount listed. But please know that we cut it freshly and specifically for you.

If you order several cheeses, we will usually make up for shortcomings on weight, if any, on the other cheeses ordered.

All cheeses are wrapped in special cheese paper and sealed to preserve freshness during transit.

Every order includes all the necessary thermal packaging and ice packs required for current weather conditions. Our main focus is getting the freshest product delivered to your door.
