Hey my Canadian readers. Have you had this? What say you?
“A ricotta cheese from Ontario has achieved two firsts: it was the first time that a fresh cheese has been named grand champion at the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix and the first time that a product from that province has won.
Quality Cheese Ricotta, made in Vaughan, Ont., was praised by judges for its creamy texture and milky aroma. The company manufactures, distributes and retails Italian specialty cheeses. Four generations are involved in the cheese making, Dairy Farmers of Canada said in a release.
“The jury found this ricotta refined, delicate and well-balanced,” said Phil Belanger, chair of the jury. “It demonstrates that a fresh cheese can be as sophisticated as an aged one.”
