Australia’s only ricotta festival returns for its third year

The Amore Cheese Ricotta Festival focuses on soft, creamy ricotta. It's savoury, as when you slather freshly on baked potatoes, ringed by oven caramelised balsamic cherry tomatoes (delish!) or sweet as when piled high on tangy lemon ricotta pancakes.

Find out the many uses of this versatile cheese at the Ricotta Festival on March 26 hosted by That's Amore Cheese. This is the third edition of this popular festival and will be held on Sunday 26th March from 10am - 4pm at the Amore headquarters in Thomastown.

The one-day event will feature Italian food and drink pop-ups, a local producer marketplace, family entertainment plus DJ sets and kids' activities. This year the event is supported by Puopolo Artisan Salumi, Harcourts Rata & Co and Pizzini Wines.

Kick off the day by tasting fresh ricotta calda (hot ricotta) straight from the vat with plenty of other delicious eats available to enjoy throughout the day.
