Calabro – The Best Ricotta Cheese in America

Calabro Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese

Like most things in life, there is ricotta and there is ricotta. For long-baked dishes, it might not make that much difference. But take one bite of this Calabro’s fresh cheese and you might think you never had ricotta before. It has the same clean milky sweetness that you find in great fresh mozzarella, and a fluffy, light texture.

I like it on toast, or with a drizzle of honey, or with a good piece of fruit. Just saying, gotta give props to these guys for keeping it real for 43 years. In Seattle I can reliably find the ricotta at Whole Foods, not sure what distribution looks like in the rest of the country. I only wish I knew where to find some of their other products.

    Hi there,
    I am trying to find where to buy Calabro Ricotta cheese online as I haven’t found a place to get it locally. Any suggestions?
    I love your website by the way. Love the content and design. Beautiful!

      Hey Nicky – I’m not sure that is a real feasible item to buy online because it is very perishable. If you can’t find a delicious ricotta locally, you could also try making it yourself – it is quite easy: link to seriouseats.com

        Thanks Michael! I’ll try making it myself and see how that goes :)
