Just a quick post for those in search of mascarpone (quite a few folks, judging from comments in my recent post, “Where can I find…”), that Italian cream cheese that is the cause of many an expanding waist or thigh. It is soft, creamy, luscious, a hint of buttery and wickedly fat filled. Essential for tira misu, fantasic on a nice piece of hearty toast, or sublime served with berries or other luscious baked desserts. I found this small tub at S&R Fort Bonifacio a few days ago at about PHP250+ which seemed like a pretty good price… Actually, the dairy offerings of S&R are really quite a find for me… great yoghurt, better Australian butter which is terrific in cookies, a sometimes interesting cheese selection, and other goodies. And no, I am not related to S&R ownership or management, I just spend an inordinate amount of my food budget there. The mascarpone is in the chiller section. Enjoy!
