Ricotta (Quality Cheese Inc)
Albert Borgo and wife Gabriella carry on four generations of cheesemaking tradition, keeping the same recipe today as their father made over fifty-five years ago upon arrival from Italy.
Made with both 100% Canadian whole cow or buffalo milk and the whey of from their other brie-style and mozzarella cheeses, the acidity and temperature levels are carefully monitored to ensure quality craftsmanship. Each Ricotta is hand-dipped and packed cool, resulting in rich, luxurious, creamy, dense, full lactic and sweeter tasting product. It’s sold in baskets, designed to be flipped upside-down on a plate to enjoy its pattern. Locally, the ricotta is sold hot, straight from the vat for neighbors who appreciate the traditional Italian style.
For pairing, “its like fresh milk, you can do anything with it”, says Albert Borgo. “Some eat it as a staple, some as food ingredient like with toast and jam.” Try in cheesecake, fresh pasta, fruit salad, pancakes or dessert recipes.
