Close enough to catch the cooling fog of the Pacific Ocean, Bellwether Farms in Sonoma County, California, can state with pride that their cheeses grace the tables of some of the finest restaurants across the country.
Determined not to let any part of the cheesemaking process go to waste, Bellwether Farms uses the Jersey milk whey left over from Carmody and Crescenza to make this buttercup yellow ricotta. Fluffy and sweet with a rich moistness, this basket-drained ricotta can be enjoyed on its own or used in a wide range of recipes from lasagna to canoli.
