Local Italian Store? Need Fresh Ricotta
 
I have a dessert I want to make for New Year's Eve which requires fresh ricotta. I have not looked for this yet, but know that good Italian stores in the The Villages may not exist. Any ideas?

You might try Gio’s Deli on 301.

Yes I think Gio's gets it in fresh once a week, pre order.

Little Italy Deli in Inverness has the very best Ricotta. They also have fresh Barrata Mozzarella which is excellent. So creamy and good with heirloom tomatoes and basil with good balsamic.

Right on with both suggestions!

Ricotta
 
Little Italy will hold fresh italian bread if you tell them what day your are stopping by.

I have never tasted Ricotta. We called cottage cheese Schmearcase (sh-meer-cah-sah) when I was a child living in Columbus, Ohio.

I have strong suspicions that if you substituted cottage cheese in your dessert recipe, few would notice.

Yeah there's a HUGE difference between the two. Different consistency, flavor, meltability.

Stayed with a friend in Pikesville MD, who made lasagna with cottage cheese. It teased sour as compared to a lasagna with ricotta. So I’d say they’re not that close or interchangeable.

It all depends on what you have grown to love and the associations you have with it and food brings wonderful memories, each different and each valid.

I see your-alls Ricotta and I raise you my Appel strudel. and my MEUNSTER. YUM. And Limburger.

Do you folks know you cannot find Thuringer lunch meat here in Florida or canned mock turtle soup??? It is hard. Few folks have even heard of Goetta.

The difference is we wouldn't suggest you put your fresh fruit on Ricotta!


I do love cottage cheese, but it has its place.

I take that as a shot to Philly Cheese steak :)

These recipes all sound wonderful. I will try a few and then see if cottage cheese stands up to this Italian masterpiece.
