La Casa Del Formaggio’s Ricotta is the product that started it all. Our tub ricotta is a soft, white, preservative-free fresh cheese that is wildly popular in SA where it is exclusively sold due to its short 12-day shelf life.
We also produce a Traditional Ricotta that is sold in a basket, as the cheese expels moisture during the course of its life. The basket is intended to aid with this natural process. As a result, this ricotta is slightly drier. This makes makes it a favourite for cooking as it lacks excess moisture which can interfere with other ingredients.
Our Smooth Ricotta range starts as Traditional Ricotta, but instead of draining the whey, we blend it back in to create a smooth consistency.
