Where to find Fresh Ricotta in LA for recipe?

Food622 Jun 18, 2009 02:37 PM

I need to find fresh ricotta (that will then be drained for 24 hours) for a recipe. Where can I find high quality fresh ricotta to make gnocchi in LA? I live in the Hancock Park area, but will travel as far west as Santa Monica if necessary.

Thank You!

    Any Italian deli. Bay Cities should have it; Monte Carlo Deli in Burbank definitely has it. Or make your own -- it's not that hard.

      Maybe try Tutto Latte Express at 1233 Vine Street between Fountain and Santa Monica.

        Beverly Hills Cheese Store. Whole Foods and Bristol Farms.

          There's a stand at the Hollywood & Ivar Sunday Farmer's market that has fresh mozzarella and ricotta. The stand is north of Selma on the west side of the street. Sundays 8:30-2.

            Clarification... the market officially closes at 1:00 but about half of the vendors linger until 1:30.

              From Tasting Table: The mozzarella guys make some fantastic ricotta out of Hawthorne. Sold at Bay cities, Larchmont Larder (I think), and Curious Palate in Culver City
