I found this cheese at Costco I like it a lot and it is really reasonable. I think its $11.59 for a 5 pound block.
Let us know how you like the Frigo. I have passed it on many a trip to Costco but never needed cheese. Yesterday I bought the wholesale equivalent of Frigo at RD, which is the Saputo brand. I'll be using it tomorrow night on my pies and cannot wait to try it.
I bit the bullet.. bought a 5 lb bag of Grande's 50/50 blend. This stuff sounds like the best bet from what I'm reading. Sadly, I paid a whopping $40 shipped, so I'm not sure if I'll be happy or sad if I find out that I need to pay $8/lb for good cheese I'll report back this weekend to see how this new pizza goes. I don't really have the freezer space or else I would probably just buy this stuff in bulk if it turned out well.
I have experimented with the following cheeses:
-Restaurant Depot's house brand Supremo Italiano shredded three cheese blend 80% mozzarella, 10% provolone and 10% mild white cheddar it is my favorite of all the shredded bags I've tried.
-RD SI shredded NY blend which is probably the same as Grande's East Coast blend
-RD SI shredded WM LM mozzarella (these 5lb. Bags are around $12 at my local RD)
-RD WM LM loaf mozzarella also around $12
-Grande WM LM loaf mozzarella $28
IMO there was no taste or melting difference between the Supremo Italiano loaf and the Grande loaf. I will not buy Grande again.
After I try the Saputo brand, my next cheese to try is Calabro which I can find at my local Whole Foods Market, thanks to a suggestion from a fellow forum member
. The other one is F&A brand which is sold by a local wholesaler but they refuse to split cases
and I'm not going to freeze cheese. Those mean ole pirates at PennMac sell it at $42 plus a million dollars for shipping. The search goes on...
