In search of great ricotta

Radiothomas | Oct 15, 2006 06:32 PM

I have a confession - I love great ricotta. I know that's a good thing... the bad thing is that since moving to Boston a year ago, I've usually just bought the industrial ricotta at places like TJ's and Costco. Wait, hear me out! I'm not a bad person!

Now I want to go back to a similar experience like I had in Sicily, where some of my best al fresca meals were with fresh ricotta from the market, tomatoes, good bread and olives... and perhaps a few other tasty bites.

Where in Boston can I find really good ricotta, but without dropping an arm and a leg to buy it (I'd guess that Formaggio might fit into the would be nice but not sure if I can really afford it category)?

Soon, I want to try making my own... but for now, how about it, hounds?
