  1. 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: ) Currently, the 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.
