Mascarpone is a thick, luxurious, creamy cheese that has been made traditionally in Italy for hundreds of years. Mascarpone is ivory in colour, soft and delicate and is easily spread. When fresh, it smells like milk and cream. It is the hero of desserts, especially Tiramisu.
Mascarpone is not just for Tiramisu! It can be used as a substitute for thick or double cream. It is great for topping desserts, dolloping on fresh fruit, thickening hot dishes and making pasta sauces.
