In my world, cheese is a wonderful indulgence. Let’s face it. When you think “cheese” you think ooey gooey or creamy or sharp.
As a whole, it’s something we automatically bring out to share with friends and family. We find ways to incorporate cheese into dishes. Dishes such as apple pie and cheese or a divine cheese sauce poured over veggies.
Why do we do this? Simple! It’s decadent! There are so many choices, flavours and textures. It’s decadent and versatile.
TreStelle is a well known name in cheese and why not? Their cheeses are rich and made with pure, fresh milk.
They asked me to try out some of their cheese and I was delighted. First thought? Mascarpone! I’ve never used this cheese before. Mascarpone is what’s used in the Italian dessert Tiramisu. When made properly this dish is a dream. Now I’m a decent cook but I wasn’t going to attempt Tiramisu the first time I pulled out the Mascarpone. So I decided on something a little simpler to test the richness and quality of this cheese.
Naturally, I was still thinking “sweet”. When I indulge, I indulge the right way 🙂
ORANGE MASCARPONE WITH FRESH FRUIT
- ½ cup TreStelle Mascarpone
- 1 pkg dream whip
- Juice and zest of ½ orange
- mixed fresh fruit
- Prepare dream whip as per package instructions
- add Mascarpone, juice and zest
- beat til smooth
- Spoon over your favorite fruit
This is as mouth watering as it looks! The TreStelle has such richness of flavour that the cream is outstanding. TreStelle Mascarpone has a thickness to it but still remains creamy.
I discovered that it tastes similiar to a cream cheese and yet TreStelle has somehow made it creamier and more spreadable than a regular cream cheese. I can already see that this will be a regular addition to my groceries. There are so many ways to incorporate this into my cooking. How about mashed potatoes or perogies? Perhaps a spoonful or two in developing a cream sauce for chicken. Maybe added to pasta sauce. I can already tell you that a simple bagel with this beautiful TreStelle Mascarpone will delight you.
I’ve tried other TreStelle products in the past and this one is a highlight for sure! It didn’t disappoint. Just like their feta cheese (which I’ve used tons of times), the quality and performance is outstanding!
If you’ve never tried TreStelle, I urge you to do so. You’ll definately notice a difference in your dishes!
