Not good on its own. Bleah. Threw together a strawberry and port tart tonight. However, it seems too liquidy; I don't think it's going to set up right. Should have used the marscapone to make it more of a custard, but I didn't.

In other news, Bumbershoot gives me many good reasons to stay in town for Labor Day: REM, Wilco, Nickel Creek, De La Soul, Rhett Miller....

  2. What is the correct spelling of this cheese?

    I see it both as mascarpone and also marscapone on the Net. One of these spellings must be correct and the other a transposition of letters?

  3. Geez people.

    It is mascarpone, not marscapone. And it's a soft, spreadable Italian cheese that tastes like cream cheese without the salt... or the flavor.
