Where can I get a great dish that includes Ricotta Forte? In fact, where can I BUY ricotta forte in Los Angeles?

    I don't know where to buy ricotta forte in Los Angeles, but a few months ago SIV reviewed Pecorino -- the restaurant, not the cheese -- and said they used it on top of a bruschetta, which probably doesn't meet your "great dish" requirement. (See: http://theguide.latimes.com/profiles/18/reviews/98 ) Currently, the http://pecorinorestaurant.com Web site doesn't mention ricotta forte (or bruschetta, for that matter). But if no one can point you to a local source, you might call Pecorino and ask where they got it.

        "Sharp" ricotta, as SIV calls it. For a better description, see, e.g., http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/04/sn...
