Baked Ricotta

Part of the fresh unripened cheese family, Baked Ricotta is a firmer, moisture reduced version of the fresh and dry ricotta variants.

The word Ricotta means "recooked" and is made by heating the whey from another cooked cheese and combining with skim milk or standard pasteurised milk.

Paesanella combines pasteurised cow's milk and whey and bakes the ricotta to a golden crust to produce its delicious Baked Ricotta.

Baked Ricotta cheese is firmer than Dry Ricotta cheese but much grainier, is golden brown crusted with a pale yellow centre, is less moist than the fresh and dry varieties of ricotta and has a mild sweet flavour with a hint of salt.

Baked Ricotta is suitable as a table cheese and is a popular ingredient in many Italian dessert recipes.
