Mascarpone recipes

Andreas Meier has created exclusive mascarpone recipes for GOLDSTEIG! Here he tell us what makes these dishes so special and where he gets his inspiration from.

Andreas Meier:

“Generally I really like cooking with Mascarpone, and especially with the one from GOLDSTEIG! An ideal dose really does perfect virtually any dish. You do have to be a bit careful when cooking with Mascarpone though! If you stir it for too long then it sets. The emulsion simply becomes unstable through the stirring and the Mascarpone may coagulate. But if you remember this, Mascarpone is really easy and versatile to use, especially in fine cuisine! Mascarpone innately provides a wonderful fat base and fine acidity. Ideal for whipping up sauces, making delicious dips or in combination with savoury main dishes too.”

About the chef

Inseparable!

Tiramisu with mango jelly

  • Up to 30 min.
  • Normal

To the recipe

Mascarpone and tiramisu are naturally inseparable! This mascarpone recipe is suitable for both cooking at home and at large-scale catering establishmentsgoes really well with this. Nowadays, tiramisu is usually not made with raw egg any more. A specific fat base and gelatine is used instead. The tiramisu glaze is only actually produced by the mascarpone . Mascarpone provides a good fat content and the associated ideal fat base. In addition, Mascarpone is used as an ideal flavour carrier and has its own delicious taste too. The mango jelly is a tasty acidic counterpart.”

Ofenschlupfer mit Ricotta und Mascarpone auf weißem Teller

Creamy, fine, luscious!

To the recipe

“This mascarpone recipe is suitable for cooking at home and large-scale catering establishments . With old Bavarian desserts, for example apple strudel or in this case “Ofenschlupfer”, the mixture of ricotta, and Mascarpone ensures that the dish is even more creamy, fine and luscious. The cheese here ensures that all the moisture is retained in the product. And the more moisture there is in the product, the more flavour is retained too. ricotta, also provides a pleasantly subtle nutty note. This mascarpone recipe is of course ideal as a delicious dessert. The dish goes really well with a berry ragout in particular.”

Chocolate with a twist!

“With this mascarpone recipe I have tried to create something new. Obviously everyone is familiar with chocolate cake but Mascarpone adds a certain oomph to it here! As a flavour carrier, Mascarponemakes the chocolate flavour even more intensive. Using Mascarpone as a flavour carrier also makes it possible to use low-fat dark chocolate. The liquid centre also provides a certain wow effect. The recipe is made in the cast iron pot again, the so-called “Dutch oven”. This is ideal here as the moisture cannot escape as quickly due to its lid. Thanks to the Dutch oven the dish can even be made on the barbecue! Ideal for a delicious Dessert after a juicy steak!”

The perfect combination!

Marzipan, mascarpone and ricotta cream with berry ragout

  • Up to 15 min.
  • Normal
  • Vegetarian

To the recipe

“With this mascarpone recipe I find the combination of marzipan, Mascarpone and ricotta, very interesting. Marzipan is the “king of desserts” anyway. The relatively high fat content of Mascarpone carries the marzipan flavour. So that the dish is not too heavy, ricotta, lightens the whole thing up again. The berry ragout adds a certain acidity. It is always important to play with counterparts when cooking, just like yin and yang.”

A bonus for any dish!

Mascarpone is really a great type of cheese! With its rather high fat content it is the perfect flavour carrier and enhances any dish! Mascarpone can also great for barbecuing as it carries the meat flavour really well, particularly when combined with vegetables.”
