Bassi Fresh Mascarpone 250g
Freshest Italian Cheese
A product of the agro-food tradition. Soft and genuine.
Tasting Notes from The Curator
The mascarpone is characterized by its smooth and creamy consistency of a pale straw color, for its sweet taste and for its delicate fragrance that reminds the scent of cream. It is distinctly different from Sterilgarda Mascarpone UHT 500g as this is made fresh. It maintains a shorter shelf life as this is intended to be made before shipment.
Mascarpone is used in both sweet and savory dishes. It is added to enhance the flavor of the dish without overwhelming the original taste. The cheese tastes best with anchovies, mustard and spices, or mixed with cocoa or coffee.
A famous Italian dessert, Tiramisu, is a layered dish made of Savoiardi or Lady Fingers, espresso, brandy, chocolate and Mascarpone. The use of this cheese for this dessert is considered a forefront of Italian cooking.
Another possible use of Mascarpone is to thicken puddings and dessert creams. It is also popular as a standalone dessert served with fruit or syrup.
