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.
I used to rely on Tesco Mascarpone as it was firm
I used to rely on Tesco Mascarpone as it was firm enough for my Tiramisu. The latest batch I bought however was very runny and my desert was a disaster, just wouldn't set. I have found the same runny Mascarpone at another supermarket and wonder whether the same supplier now has a monopoly. I do hope this was a one off. Very very annoying.
Worst mascarpone I have ever seen
This is by far the worse mascarpone cheese, I ever bought in my life. Wanted to do my tiramisu (the same recipe I did for past 20 years) and after mixing it it just turned into watery milk, I have never seen something like this in my life. That will teach me to buy in Tesco, there is the reason why I never did and never will!!!
Good value and quality
This mascarpone is great, simply mix it into a jar of tomato pasta sauce and it makes a fantastic rich a creamy low cost tomato and mascarpone sauce. Mix in some finely chopped fried bacon and it's awesome with pasta.
