Mascarpone - 200g RRO
Mascarpone is an Italian cheese traditionally made from the Lombardy region.
Mascarpone is used in both sweet and savory dishes. It is added to enhance the flavour of the dish without overwhelming the original taste. The cheese tastes best with anchovies, mustard and spices, or mixed with cocoa or coffee. Tiramisu, a layered dish with espresso, brandy, chocolate and Mascarpone has brought the cheese to the forefront of Italian cooking. Another possible use of Mascarpone is to thicken puddings and dessert creams. It is also popular as a standalone dessert served with fruit or syrup.
Whether you buy Mascarpone or make it at home, it needs to be consumed within a few days or it can go bad.
