Has anyone made ricotta?

ever since i saw one of the chefs make ricotta on "the next iron chef", i've wanted to give it a try. it doesn't seem that difficult. surprisingly, not a single one of my hundreds of cookbooks includes a recipe, but i found this and will probably try it:

but first, i wanted to see if anyone here has made it or has a recipe or a technique to recommend. thanks!

      sounds good to me! especially if we can include some kind of cured pork product on the menu...



      Looks easy, doesn't it? I've had this bookmarked to try ever since I saw it in the magazine....

      1. On Serious Eats they featured Micheal Chiarello's Napastyle recipe that uses buttermilk instead of vinegar or lemon juice. I liked his instructions and am going to try it this weekend.

            good, your request for a report will further motivate my butt :)

          2. I've sure thought about it, and saved this link (with pictures!)
            which will include some other links, including this other one...
