It’s a delicate fresh and creamy cheese with a sweet taste and a persistent buttery aroma.
Mascarpone is the main ingredient of Tiramisù, but it can also be used to prepare cakes, creams and ice creams.
It’s obtained by heating cow’s milk cream and letting the natural acidity separate and curdle it, before the whey separates.
