Traditional Italian fresh ricotta is smoother than cottage cheese and tastes mildly sweet. Good Ricotta is firm, not solid and consists of a mass of fine, moist, delicate grains, neither salted nor ripened. The light, delicate consistency and clean flavours make it a perfect accompaniment to a variety of recipes and dishes.
Ricotta is a popular ingredient in many Italian dishes. It is also suitable as a sauce thickener. Fresh Ricotta pairs great with Sauvignon Blanc.
All the best Jan
