No matter your family’s taste buds, our Ricotta is so versatile you can make just about anything with it.
After last month’s deliciously savoury rice cakes stuffed with Scamorza, we thought we’d satisfy the sweet tooths this time around! Check out our Crostata di Ricotta recipe. It’s a real show-stopping pastry that’s perfect served with a strong espresso.
Tune in to this month’s ‘Cheese Chat’ LIVE on Instagram with special guest Maeve O’Meara to talk all things food in Marrickville and get all the details for the upcoming MOULD Festival before tickets sell out!
In the south of Italy, you’ll find many sweet recipes with the perfumed combination of ricotta, orange zest, and cinnamon. This is one of those. The bite of bittersweet dark chocolate pieces and liquor soaked raisins bring a whole new level of exotic that makes this crostata such a memorable pastry for any occasion. Or no occasion at all.
While there are no strict rules around what Ricotta you should be using for certain dishes, we can help with some recommendations! Our Buffalo Ricotta has a creamy texture making it just about the best thing to spread on toast. The Fresh Cow’s Ricotta retains a slight firmness, making it the perfect choice for desserts and baking. If you ever made cannoli or lasagna and couldn’t work out why your filling was too loose or runny, you may be using a ricotta that is too wet. Try our Ricotta for your next cook off!

We’ve partnered with our friends at Brasserie Bread on their annual ‘Cheese Toastie Challenge’, marrying bread and cheese for a melty lunchtime delight. In our number, we generously butter the outside of sliced sourdough with whey butter before filling with pieces of Scamorza Bianca and grated Mastro. What cheese will you use in your version of a toastie? Be sure to tag us and use the hashtag #cheesetoastiechallenge.
