Ricotta fresca di bufala cheese
The cheese is made using the leftover whey from the production of other cheeses such as Mozzarella di bufala or Provoletta. Indeed, the name ‘ricotta’ literally means ‘re-cooked’ and is derived from the fact that the cheese is made by heating the whey from another cooked cheese.
The cheese is slightly grainy, but smoother than cottage cheese and it is white and moist with a slightly sweet flavour.. It is creamy with a slightly tangy bite, and a smooth finish. It is usually sold in vacuum packs of about 300 g.
