All you need to know about mascarpone

This soft, cow’s milk cheese originated in Lombardy and is one of my favorites because of its creamy texture and wonderful flavor. You can use this in a variety of ways, from sweet to savory dishes, although I prefer it with fresh fruit. There are American producers that have tried to make the real thing, but I urge you to try a taste test between American and Italian mascarpone and see which you prefer. It will be a fun and tasty experiment.
