Grande Ricotta Prima Dolce is an authentic cheese reminiscent of the hand-dipped Ricotta made in the Italian countryside. In true classic tradition, Prima Dolce is delivered in the original basket of collection, preserving the quality of the curd while providing a smoother, creamier texture. The curds “knit” together for an enriched mouth feel, delivering a clean, light and sweet dairy flavor.
One thing that makes Prima Dolce different than our other styles of Ricotta is that it can be sliced or cubed. As a highly versatile cheese, it can also be mixed, whipped, blended or paired with nearly any ingredient to embolden, not mask, the flavors of your recipes.
More and more, Ricotta is becoming a mainstream ingredient in restaurants. Datassential reports that Ricotta is found on 88% of independent casual Italian restaurant menus and 68% of independent QSR pizza menus. Now more than ever, consumers are willing to pay more for specialty items like Ricotta Prima Dolce. In fact, 48% of millennials will try a new food simply because it sounds interesting. Datessential also reports you can charge an additional $3 per entrée and $2 for appetizers that feature Ricotta.
