Smooth and thick, soft and creamy, Mascarpone is a fresh cheese meant to be eaten soon after it’s produced. However, Wisconsin Mascarpone enjoys a longer shelf life than imported varieties. Originating in the Lombardy region of Italy, it was traditionally made only during the fall and winter months as a dessert cheese. In Wisconsin, Mascarpone is available year-round and has many applications.
