Ricotta is a highly nutritious cheese made predominantly from the whey of other cheeses.
It lasts up to a week if chilled, but to enjoy it at its best, use it within three to four days of buying.
It has a wonderful soft texture and very subtle flavour and complements many dishes, both savoury and sweet.
Try it folded through warm pastas, spread thickly over toastt with honey, baked on pizzas or in salads.
