Mascarpone is used in both sweet and savoury dishes. It is added to enhance the flavour of the dish without overwhelming the original taste. Mascarpone cheese is a creamy, rich Italian cheese known for its smooth, silky and velvety texture. It is a soft, double or triple cream cheese that originated in the Lombardy region of Italy. Mascarpone cheese has a mild and slightly sweet flavour. It is a key ingredient in many classic desserts, such as Tiramisu and cheesecake. It is used in pasta sauce, risotto, and creamy soup to add a luxurious and creamy texture. It is also popular as a standalone dessert served with fruit or syrup.

Store mascarpone cheese in the refrigerator and use it within a few days of opening. It is important to keep it sealed to prevent it from drying out.
