Traditional Italian soft cheese. Ideal for desserts and savoury dishes.
Thought to originate from the Lombardy region of Italy, mascarpone is a fresh cream cheese, milky white in colour. Soft enough to spread, it is made from pure enriched cream. The name probably comes from the Italian dialect word mascarpa, referring to any cheeses made from whey.
