Mascarpone cheese is a rich and creamy Italian cheese that originated in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy. It is a triple-cream cheese made from whole cow's milk. The name 'mascarpone' is believed to have been derived from the Lombard word 'mascarpa,' which means 'quark' in English. Mascarpone has a smooth, creamy, and velvety texture, as well as a mild flavour. It is used in desserts such as Tiramisu and Cannoli cream, and it is also employed in savoury dishes. Mascarpone is perishable and should be refrigerated and used within a few days of opening.
