First I heard of Shamrock Foods.  It would be interesting if you can get Grande there.

I wend to RD in Pasadena now and they are carrying the Belgioioso.  A sign says new product.  If you want to try that your drive to Pasadena is maybe an hour from Riverside depending on where in Riverside you live.   Might be worth the drive.  Most loafs are 5 LBS but this is 7 LBS.   If Shamrock doesn't have what you want maybe try RD in Pasadena and try BelGioioso.

There's an RD about 20 minutes from me, I've never been but plan to soon.  I might end up going to Pasadena if the one out here doesn't have it. Plus Pie & Burger's out there, well I might need to Google if it still is. But I remember the 1 time I went there it was delicious.

I have seen Pie & Burger  recently.  I believe it is still there. If you end up going to RD in Pasadena if RD near you doesn't have what you want make sure you call to see if they are open to the public.  Thing is sometimes they are open to the public and sometimes they aren't.  If they aren't and you want to go in and buy I will help you get in.

I have a question, I'd call them but they're closed. Google says their open to the public, but all the pics I'm seeing of the inside are a warehouse with tons of forklifts. So I'm guessing it's will call?  I'm confused at how I'm supposed to know what they have.  Their web site says the location near me's a hybrid warehouse. Which I'm guessing means there could be a section for non worker/delivery people like me. I'm just trying to figure out how I know what they carry.  I know I can call Monday morning and ask,  but if you fill me I might need to be there Monday morning when they open :D


The entire store is open to the public. Itís like a bigger Smart and Final. No membership fees, crazy hours and I donít think Iíve ever seen a forklift. Itís a really nice play to shop for things and overall I rate it much higher than Restaurant Depot and Chef Store.

For pizza making they have Alta Cuccina, tomato magic, 7-11, Dinappoli tomatoes(not the Bianco ). Flours arenít great but they do carry Caputo Blue, Harvest King, Bouncer and Kyrol if you donít mind bromate. Cheeses as I stated earlier used to be incredible but they have discontinued most of them. I picked up grande fior di latte last week for $15. They also have fresh yeast which I prefer using for $2. Sadly, no quality pepperoni.

Too bad the Shamrock So Cal location is about an hour and a half from me.  I will have to stick with RD.  I love RD anyway.  They have all the tomato products you mention.  Too bad no Grande tho.  I am happy with Saputo gold and Bella Rosano tho.  I will try BelGioioso.

Caputo Blue's enough alone for me to go, nowhere around me has anything 00, and ordering it online's $$$ for shipping.  last order online I paid $22 for a 10 lb bag of 00, I gotta go Monday to check this place out. The pics I see on Google are definitely for the warehouse side, and the 50 or so reviews are all from truckers who make deliveries there.  I can't find any actual reviews for the store part. I couldn't even find if it's a store you go to to or a will call.  Their web site isn't very informative.  I like Smart & Final but sadly no 00 flour, at least at the one by me. And their cheese selection's just okay. Thank you for the reply, I'll be so happy to go Monday and get a 50lb bag of Caputo Blue, you don't even know :D

From their web site, Shamrock is in these locations:

    Phoenix, AZ
    Colorado Springs, CO
    Denver, CO
    Ft. Collins, CO
    Albuquerque, NM
    Farmington, NM
    Las Cruces, NM
    Roswell, NM
    El Paso, TX

   So Cal location must be new.

Web site (at least for my store) only show Grande Fresh Curd Mozz, no loafs.

Pricey...
I only pay $25.xx locally.

It's all relative, nowhere except this place around me carries it, so $35's great. If I buy online shipping alone will be that much. It's $72 on Amazon with "free shipping"

I interpret Amazon's "free Shipping" as "No additional Shipping Charge"
Shipping charge is built into the price of just about every item.

I couldn't resist.  I went tp RD to buy a brisket and I bought the Belgioioso LMWM.  I have enough Saputo Gold for many pizzas and I need to finish it first so don't expect a review anytime soon. Good thing is Scott says he got some his rep so we can look forward to his review.  Why did I buy if I have SG, why not wait? Because the RD sometimes carries something and the discontinues.  My understanding is if Cheese is unopened it could last some months.  This is huge, we are talking 7 LBS.

pizzaeater 101..........Please post picture when you use that cheese,
I am not a big fan of Belgioioso fresh mozz, just the look of how it melts on pizza. when we conducted testing on how it looks when melt, did not pass but this cheese i am curious. I am always looking for more options so i know where to go incase i get in supply crunch.

Scott got a sample from his rep.  I think he will be posting pics soon.

It might be a little while, probably 2 weeks, but looking forward to testing.

Did anyone see this? I'm glad she said the name of BelGioioso because I didn't know how to properly say the name.

Just now trying this cheese.  Its awesome!  I don't have any grande right now to do a side by side, but first impressions are that this Belgioioso tastes better and is not as salty (which I think is a good thing).   great new product.

The pizza was an upside down, so im not sure how it melts. 

I cant find this cheese for sale in ma yet, but I was curious about price so I looked up the pricing in one of the southern CA restaurant depots.  It was the most expensive mozzarella cheese by a decent margin.  I could be wrong, but im guessing this cheese is even more expensive than grande, or certainly at that (top level) price point.
