When it comes to cheese, we definitely think of it as a savoury ingredient – pizza, lasagne, wine and cheese. But there is one heavenly cheese that does beautifully in both sweet and savoury dishes – mascarpone. The Tony Hakim Food Lovers team take you through some mouth-watering mascarpone dishes for both the sweet-tooth and the savoury aficionado.
This pasta dish is relatively simple – a classic tomato sauce gets a luxurious twist with the addition of mascarpone.
The perfect elegant and delicious appetisers for your next dinner party or gathering, this is a burst of fresh, classic flavours.
Figs and mascarpone are a match made in heaven. We are loving the twist on these classic flavours with the addition of crowd-favourite pistachio, and black pepper.
For a fancy twist on an old favourite, we had to pick this mascarpone and chive mashed potato recipe. Perfect for a dinner party side dish.
Chocolate? Yum. Mascarpone? Yum. This recipe is pure indulgence, with the creamy, rich filling. Definitely one for a special occasion.
It is summer, and here in Australia, we love our ice cream. Lemon and mascarpone are a great pairing, with the creamy and the citric. Serve with cherries for an extra twist.
With cherries in season right now, we can’t think of a more perfect dessert to prepare this Christmas.
And for the adventurous cook… try making your mascarpone at home!
It sounds a lot harder than it is; if you have the time and patience, you can make your own homemade mascarpone. And we bet it makes these dishes taste even better!
