Strictly speaking it's a cheese, but wonderful Italian mascarpone is a superb ingredient for cheesecakes, creamy accompaniments to baked fruit and even for fillings and toppings for cakes. If you haven't yet tried it, you're in for a real treat!
Mascarpone has both a richness and lightness that makes it the ideal ingredient for summery desserts. Add plenty of seasonal berries and you'll be in heaven!
What a wonderfully easy ice cream this is! The addition of nutmeg makes it a real winner with any hot apple dessert as the flavours complement each other to perfection.
These heavenly little trifles are actually an assembly job with plenty of tropical flavours: rum-soaked sponge, bananas, mangoes and pineapple, topped with a vanilla-infused layer of mascarpone and custard. Who could resist?
