Browsing in local food markets, delicatessens, butcher shops, greengrocers, bakeries and supermarkets is among the "must-do's" whenever Peter and I spend time overseas. To us, this pastime is almost as enjoyable as visiting museums. Hence, our preference is to rent an apartment with a fully-equipped kitchen. That way, we can live, shop and cook like the locals.
Mascarpone made an appearance in my kitchen in the late 1970s, when I first tried my hand at making that wonderful layered Italian dessert, Tiramisu. Now, almost forty years later, I wish I had a penny for all the times I have purchased a tub of the rich and creamy curd 'cheese'. If only I had tried making it home back then!
