Mascarpone is a thick, double or triple cream, soft cheese with a very high fat content ranging from 60% to 75%. Its texture ranges from smooth, creamy to buttery, depending on how it is processed during cheesemaking. In short, Mascarpone is just thickened cream that is on its way to becoming butter.The resulting rich butterfat content makes the cheese an essential ingredient in Italian recipes like Tiramisu and cheesecakes.
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. It is also popular as a standalone dessert served with fruit or syrup.
