Cheese Reviews: How to Make Homemade Ricotta

Ricotta means “recooked” in Italian.  It’s a fresh cheese made from cow, goat, sheep, or Italian water buffalo whey leftover from cheese making after curd gets strained out; most American ricottas are cow-based.  Italian ricottas come in many varieties and some are even protected by law. Milk can be added during production or replace whey in some cases, but the recycled whey is what gives ricotta its name.

Kamurocho Style Ramen from Yakuza 0

The Yakuza series!  It’s a Japanese video game franchise that combines high melodrama and low-brow goofiness with lots of surprisingly sincere moments and I love it.  My husband and I enjoy playing games together, especially RPGs, and Yakuza 0 was the first Yakuza game we played.  This recipe is a tribute to that experience and a nod to the love of food, including ramen, you can find in the games.
