Foods / Cheese, Mascarpone

About This Food

Description

Mascarpone originated in the Lombardy region of Italy and was made during the fall and winter months and used strictly as a dessert cheese.

With its rich, buttery, slightly sweet flavor and smooth, thick, creamy texture, mascarpone contains 70 percent milkfat, which makes it a triple crème.

Because cheese is essentially milk that is condensed it is important to choose mascarpone cheese made from organic milk, free from hormones.

Selecting & Storing

Choose organic mascarpone and keep refrigerated. Mascarpone pairs well with berries, fresh figs, and wheat crackers; for wines pair with dry sparkling wines or champagne.
