Mascarpone is a deliciously rich and creamy, triple-cream spreadable cheese. Mascarpone is ivory in color, soft and delicate and is easily spread. When fresh, it smells like milk and cream. It is the hero of desserts, especially Tiramisu.
"My favourite product is "Mascarpone cheese - I use it in lots of my recipes, whether its a dessert, dip or even a main meal. Creamy pasta dishes, mmmmm!"
Mascarpone is ideal for desserts and as a substitute for cream. It is a main ingredient of the Italian dessert tiramisu. Serve with fresh fruit. It can also be used instead of butter or Parmesan cheese to thicken and enrich risotto.
