About Mascarpone video
Video DescriptionAppreciated because of its natural flavour, mascarpone is not a cheese but rather the result of a culture being added to the cream skimmed off the milk, used in the production of Parmesan.
Mascarpone has a light cream colour and a satin-like texture with a rich yet subtle and a slightly buttery-tangy flavour. It can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes and is probably most well-known as a major ingredient of the Italian coffee trifle, tiramisu. Mascarpone is also an excellent alternative to double cream served with macerated berries or poached fruit. For something savoury stir mascarpone into pasta with roasted peppers, anchovies, capers and chopped fresh parsley. Always keep mascarpone in its original container in the refrigerator. Freezing is not recommended.
