Full Shipping Details
Ricotta Salata is one of Italy's most unusual and least understood cheeses. Making it from goat's milk makes it even more unique. The goat's milk curds and whey used to make this cheese are pressed and dried even before the cheese is aged, giving this pure white cheese a dense but slightly spongy texture and a salty, milky flavor -- like a dry Italian feta.

Despite its name, this is not the soft, creamy Ricotta as Americans have come to know it. In Italian, Ricotta simply means "recooked". It is a cheese-making process rather than a specific cheese. This goat's milk Ricotta is also a salata, or "salted" cheese. As fresh Ricotta goes through its natural aging process, it becomes harder over time. This goat's milk Ricotta Salata is not overly aged, making it semi-soft in texture.

  • Made from goat's milk.
