Mascarpone Cheese can be found in most major supermarkets and should be found in the refrigerated cheese section and usually costs just under £3.00 for 500g. It could also be found at a cheese deli but you should not have to go to a specialist food store as it is usually stocked at the supermarket. The easiest way to find anything in the supermarket is to simply ask the staff who are generally helpful and informative and manage to find products extremely quickly, They can also tell you if they usually stock a product but they are currently out of stock. By talking to the manager of your supermarket, you can also recommend certain products that you request they stock. There is a high chance that you are not the only customer who requires this product and most supermarket or mini-market managers will be more than happy to accommodate your needs and provide customer satisfaction to guarantee you will return to their store.

A soft, white, fresh, vegetarian, cream cheese from the Lombardy region of southern Italy. In fact, it is not cheese at all, but rather the result of a culture being added to the cream skimmed off the milk, used in the production of Parmesan. It is, however, described as a curd cheese, although it is made in much the same way as yogurt and it is often used in deserts.

If you cannot find mascarpone cheese in the supermarket, it is possible to make your own at home. It takes at least 12 hours to set but only takes 15 minutes to prepare. You simply need 1 quart heavy cream and 1/4 teaspoon tartaric acid. Follow this link for detailed instructions on how to make mascarpone cheese: homecooking.about.com/od/cheeserecipes/r/bldairy40.htm

I couldn't find it at Kroger tonight. I went there, got everything for Tiramisu but Mascarpone cheese. They couldn't help me find it either.....or they were just not good at helping their customers, I don't know. But where else I can go besides Kroger? Anyone find one from Giant Eagle, Whole Food Market, or Trader Joe's?

From an Italian deli perhaps? I'm not a big fan of creamy cheeses because they are responsible for all those pounds on my thighs - but if you love that kinda stuff then I'd so go local and buy from an artisan food store.

You didn’t mention your place but still let me guide you. Mascarpone cheese is quit similar to cream cheese. One can easily get this Italian cheese form grocery stores. If there is any Italian market near your locality then you will surly get this from there.
