Saxelby Cheesemongers is proud to debut Salvatore Bklyn Ricotta, for sale online only at saxelbycheese.com!! This luscious, dense and rich ricotta is made fresh to order every day just a block away from our headquarters in Red Hook, Brooklyn!
Salvatore Bklyn began as a labor of love after Betsy Devine and Rachel Marks encountered the ricotta of one Tuscan elder gent called Salvatore whilst traveling in Tuscany. They took time out of their vacation to learn from the master and brought their new craft home to Brooklyn. After many trials they managed to tame their wild American curds into a creamy and delectable cheese.
Betsy’s ricotta made a splash years ago at Brooklyn’s famed Smorgasburg market, where Martha Stewart dubbed it her “favorite ricotta in the whole world”. Betsy served it true rustic Italian fashion: on crusty bread with nothing but prosciutto and a drizzle of olive oil. Try with our Casella’s Prosciutto and see what the lines were all about!
