Almost Unadorned Ricotta

Author Notes:

I don't want to sound flip with this recipe, but reeeeally good ricotta should shine. To fancy up the presentation you could grate the tiniest bit of Meyer lemon zest over top just for show.


Serves: variable


  • about 1/2 cup really good ricotta per person
  • best quality olive oil
  • best quality sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper
In This Recipe


  1. Place ricotta cheese into individual little dessert bowls. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and a grind or two of pepper over each. Drizzle a little of the olive oil over top of each bowl. Serve as a cheese course or for dessert.
