RICOTTA SALATA

Sheep's Milk
Italy
Aged: 3 months

Italy’s version of feta, this rindless sheep’s milk cheese is a staple in Sicily adorning practically every dish.  Ricotta Salata, a cheese made from whey, is named for the process by which it’s made rather than denoting a specific cheese: it simply means recooked (“ricotta”) & salted (“salata”).  Its flavor is mildly nutty with wonderful milky sweet notes.  The texture is dense, smooth & spongy yet firm enough to grate—a nice alternative to Romano.
