Bella Casara Ricotta made history at the 8th edition of the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix as the first fresh cheese, and first Ontario cheese, to be given the title of Grand Champion. Winner, Fresh Cheese Category, 2015 Canadian Cheese Grand Prix. The creamy texture and milky aroma of Bella Casara Ricotta result in a cheese that is refined, delicate and well-balanced.
Ingredients: Pasteurized whey, pasteurized milk, citric acid, salt
Whether with fresh herbs or a simple fruit coulis, it can be served from appetizers to dessert. Storage Fresh cheeses have the shortest refrigerator shelf-life of all the cheese categories, varying from a few days to two weeks according to the cheese. Most Canadian Ricotta cheeses are packaged and bear a "best before" date, so check that date and keep your cheese refrigerated. Drain off any whey before storing, as this can sour the cheese. Discard Ricotta if it is no longer pure white; as it goes off, it becomes yellow and sour. Freezing Freezing is not recommended for Fresh cheeses.
