               Crave Brothers Mascarpone for Refreshing Summer Snacks and Entertaining



Waterloo, WI, July 28, 2014—Summer is all about simplicity, and Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics wants to remind you that Mascarpone cheese is a versatile ingredient that helps you celebrate the season. This award-winning cheese sets off the flavors of seasonal fruits such as peaches and berries, and adds richness to easy appetizer and dessert recipes. Appreciated for its sweet, creamy characteristics, Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone has earned more than two dozen awards.

With ingredients like Mascarpone on hand, there’s no need to wait until the weekend to create memorable snacks for spur-of-the-moment front porch or patio get-togethers. Even on busy days, you’ll have time to make refreshing summery treats. Simply top your favorite shortbread cookie with a dollop of Crave Brothers Mascarpone, and a bit of lemon curd or lemon marmalade. You can also stir a little lemon zest into the Mascarpone. Top with a fresh raspberry or blueberry. 

For a savory version of this snack, serve the Mascarpone and lemon curd or marmalade on thin slices of toasted ciabatta bread. If desired, stir the lemony mixture into the Mascarpone before spreading on the toast slices. When you keep these ingredients on hand—along with a chilled bottle of sparkling wine—you’ve always got the makings for a summery celebration.
