Poorer quality than previously
I have just read a review from someone else who made Tiramisu successfully in the past with Tesco Mascapone. The last few times I have made it , it has been so runny, such a shame. I will have to try different mascapone. They have definitely done something to the recipe!
Excellent for the price.
This mascarpone has a good high fat content and texture for making ice creams, frostings and holds nice and firmly for a velvety tiramisu.
Do not use Tesco Marscarpone to make Tiramisu
I recently bought Tesco Marscarpone to make a Tiramisu. I have used it successfully many times in the past. On this occasion the Marscarpone would not set and I was left with a sloppy mess. I thought I had done something wrong so I bought some more. This was a big mistake because the same thing happened. It’s clear the quality of this product has been significantly reduced and it is no longer fit for purpose. Very disappointing and a complete waste of money.
Excellent! I use it in my vanilla icing for cakes - makes it less sweet and lovely consistency. Great product - tried one from a budget supermarket and it wasn't as good as this.
I bought this last shop and was delighted with it. Quite solid and needed to be broken up in the pan whilst heating. I'm no connoisseur of the taste but it seemed very nice to me. I used it with pasta and bacon and it was delicious. It certainly could have been used as filling, for cheesecake or tiramisu type desserts. Some people complained of poor consistency and I can only imagine that must have been a bad batch.
This used to be lovely thick and creamy,now it loo
This used to be lovely thick and creamy,now it looks whipped.It really is awful. Come on Tesco bring back the orig mascarpone,this is really not the quality one expects
Great mascarpone cheese
This is excellent, extra thick, creamy mascarpone cheese. Made in Italy. Makes beautiful tiramisu, mascarpone and tomato sauce, ham and cheese sandwiches with salad and many more uses. Far, far better than homemade mascarpone cheese.
Agree, the consistency has changed. I’d been using
Agree, the consistency has changed. I’d been using it for years in a favourite pasta recipe but the latest lot bought last week was just too runny. Shame!
Tesco Mascarpone has changed not so good as before
Up til the last couple of weeks the Tesco mascarpone has been quit creamy and reasonably solid in consistency. However, it is now not so creamy and softer, almost whipped in consistency and softer. It doesn't have the same taste, so obviously it is from a different supplier. I hope they change it back because I was going to cancel my order this week and buy the Italian mascarpone, but that isn't on offer now.
