mascarpone cheese

Hailing from Italy’s Lombardy region, mascarpone is a buttery-rich double-cream to triple-cream cheese made from cow’s milk. It’s ivory-colored, soft and delicate, and ranges in texture from that of a light clotted cream to that of room-temperature butter. It’s versatile enough to be blended with other flavors and is sometimes sold sweetened with fruit. In Italy’s Friuli region a favorite blend is mascarpone mixed with anchovies, mustard and spices. But in truth, this delicately flavored cheese needs little embellishment other than being topped with fruit. See also cheese.
