Mascarpone is a deliciously rich and creamy, triple-cream spreadable cheese made from cows’ milk, denatured with citric acid. Mascarpone is ivory in color, soft and delicate and is easily spread with a texture similar to butter at room temperature. When fresh, it smells like milk and cream.
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.
Available at the following supermarkets and selected gourmet stores in Australia: IGA, Foodland, Franklins and Ritchies.
