Finally convinced one of my Roving Friends of Leisure™ to get out to Gioia cheese in S. El Monte to pick up the Gioia tifecta sampler pack.
Here's the current prices for fresh, handmade Italian cheese direct from the factory. (These are the bare minimum quantities that they are willing to sell to the public).
Burrata - $6 for 1 lb.
Mozzarella - $12 for 3 lbs.
Ricotta - $6 for 4 lbs.
So, $24 for an absurd quantity of super fresh, high quality, handmade Italian cheese. What a steal!
Looks like it will be pizza and lasagna for dinner at my house for the next several nights.
