Fresh Ricotta

Ricotta literally means 're-cooked' in Italian. This is because the process of making ricotta involves re-cooking the whey after the milk solids have been separated out. This is why ricotta is considered a whey-cheese.

The process of making ricotta is a tedious one. The delicate curds that are formed through the process need to be handled carefully to avoid affecting the texture and flavor. At Antonio Mozzarella Factory, we have three different types of Ricotta for all your cooking needs - each one made with the upmost care and attention to quality.
