Bacio Shredded Whole Milk Cheese
« on: February 07, 2014, 12:24:39 AM »
I got to try this cheese for the first time, at a local Pizzeria in my area. I really loved this cheese and might give it the edge over Grande. However, i have to do a side by side someday.

Has anyone on the forum done a side by side tasting of Grande and Bacio? I would love to hear your feedback on this! Thank you.

Ive done a side by side with the shredded provolone mix of both... bacio is much better than grande unless you want a very strong provolone taste. The bacio is very NY like to me.

JD,

Thanks for the feedback. The Bacio cheese I had was Mozzarella. I really enjoyed it, enough to want to purchase a bag. Finding it, without going through a distributor or pizzeria friend, will be the real issue.

I agree, I used to get mine at a pizzeria but he recently switched to Grande so I cannot get it anymore.

Here is my thread from last year when I first tried the Bacio mix (it's half Mozz half Provolone)
http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,23484.msg238301.html#msg238301

Even though it's part skim, the flavor is great. If you compare the nutritional info, part skim is only 1 gram of fat less than the whole milk so it may only be 10% "part skim".

There is an older, 4 page thread on Bacio cheese here:

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,19351.0.html

As for getting it, perhaps user Hobbs can weigh in if PFG's Chefmart's cash and carry stores sell  the Bacio line:

Bacio is a registered trademark of Leprino Foods.

EDITED to reflect that Bacio is trademarked by Leprino Foods, not PFG/Vistar/Roma Foods, but is exclusively sold by them.

Visited Florida this week and hooked up with the same Pizzeria that sold me a bag of Bacio Cheese a year ago on my last visit. I noticed that they have gone to using the 50/50 blend of Bacio Cheese. I made pizza at the beach house for everyone and we all loved the pizza. I was really impressed with Bacio Cheese.

I used that cheese exclusively when I first got into pizza making, it actually is a surprisingly good cheese for part skim/pre-shredded. The provolone is very mild, almost undetectable.

Just curious what cheese you use now and why you like it better? Thanks JD.

I use Saputo from Restaurant Depot. I can't say I like it better than Bacio, I wish I had a source here in NY so I can compare side by side.
