Supremo Italiano, Polly O, Saputo/Stella
« on: April 08, 2008, 12:35:34 PM »
I ran across a restaurant distributor today with a warehouse.  This is nice because you can browse.  The cash and carry places generally make you tell them what you want.  They did not have any flour that interested me that I saw.  Just bromated bleached stuff.

For those in the area (I don't think there is actually anyone in Northern NJ on here other than me) it is Restaurant Depot in South Hackensack.  You will need a business certificate (can get one for free from State of NJ) to buy anything there.

These are the cheeses they have.  I really don't have any experience with any of them.  I picked up a loaf of the Supremo Italiano out of curiosity but haven't tried it yet.  The price was about the same as Saputo and a little bit lower than Polly O.  It seems to be something of a no name brand (nothing much on Google) I also picked up some cubed Bel Gioioso  sharp provolone.  Pretty yummy.    They also have pizza pans, screens, peels, etc of the American Metalcraft variety.

PC, I have been there, but they wouldn't sell to me.  I went there specifically to get the Supremo Italiano, so I am happy to see this thread.  I found out that it is the brand used at at a famous pizzeria that has good flavor to their cheese.  So let us know what you think!

That is their own brand

Using this old thread, just went to the Dallas R. Depot and picked up the Supremo Italiano shredded Mozz & prov mix. just one word..."MEH", melted well, no string, but no flavor. Did I just get a bad 5 lb bag or do I just need to mix my own?

Is the PollyO block the same cheese that they sell in all supermarkets in smaller packages?
I remember in the 70s PollyO was a good chesse but since they have been sold I am just wondering if they went downhill?.........JT

I just bought some and am happy with the Supremo Italiano.  I have some Poly O to try next.
