Does anyone know where I can get good ricotta? Preferably not something in a plastic tub.
Check Whole Foods and Martin's.
maybe Nor Joe's
St. James Cheese: www.stjamescheese.com
St. James definitely carries ricotta salata, but I wonder what the OP means by "fresh" ricotta? Fresh ricotta would have to come in a tub or some kind of container.
St. James or Martin's. You could also make your own. It is quite easy...
I disagree to some extent. It's not exactly easy on its own, but if you've got very good fresh milk and are making cheese anyway, you might as well do something with the whey, and that's where the ricotta comes in.
I made it for the hell of it last sunday. It was way easy. You can do it! Just find the best milk you can!
That's cool! What did you make with the curds?
Cow's milk mozzarella is fun to make.
You could also check out Just Italy Deli in Metairie - Veterans at Aris if memory serves
If you want to make you own Gourmet or Bon Appetit magazine just ran a spread on a DIY version - could probably find it on their websites.
