Product information

Flavour is a Frontier


Natoora Sicilian Ricotta Salata


- A semi-hard sheep's cheese made from fresh ricotta, drained and hand salted with coarse sea salt.

- We source this from the Caruso family near the Erei mountains in central Sicily.

- The Carusos work with small farmers in the region to bring in the milk of native breed sheep.

- Flocks are moved from the mountains to the valleys, feeding on pasture – a rich local diet which informs the flavour of the cheese.

Take it further

- Classically used in Pasta alla Norma, try this across multiple pasta dishes for a fresh, salty kick.

- In the warmer months, shave it over melon topped with fresh mint and good olive oil.

Natoora' radical approach to seasonal sourcing is shaping the future of food

We are revolutionising the food system. 

We work direct with growers who value flavour, biodiversity and heritage over yield.  

We give them the support they need to build a better future for food, rooted in small scale, sustainable agriculture that gives back to our planet.

Hard to find specialty ricotta!

Critical ingredient for many Sicilian, Calabrian and other southern Italian dishes - this is a hard cheese, nothing like the soft ricotta we are mainly used to in this country. So pleased its sold on Ocado! Also, mine has lasted for quite some time after the use by date, as long as its stored well and cut with a clean knife.

Rubbery with no flavour

I didnt like the texture, which was rubbery, and there was no taste whatsoever other than salt.

bland and salty

I've tried to be balanced in this review... Cons: very little flavour other than salt. Does not melt. Quite hard texture which I did not enjoy. Pro: Grates very well

Great sprinkled over pasta

Im surprised by the negative comments on the saltines of this cheese. It makes great accompaniment to pastas when grated. And it doesnt go off easily, stores ages in a tight container in the fridge. Just remember to place a paper towel inside to absorb moisture.
