Wisconsin: the masters of mascarpone
Get this: at a recent World Championship Cheese Contest, a Wisconsin cheesemaker won the award for best mascarpone in the world.
The best Italian-style mascarpone in the world, made in Wisconsin. Now that may seem strange to you, but it seems quite natural to us. That's because, for 175 years, we've been taking traditional cheese recipes from all over the world and working our cheese wizardry to make the best cheeses on the planet even better.
This dedication to cheese – you might call it obsession – is the reason we produce more flavors, varieties, and styles anywhere else in the world. It's what drives 90% of our farmers to devote their milk to making cheese, and why we wanted to make dang sure that we have the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world aside from the one in Switzerland.
So, next time you want to sweeten up your life with a dollop of mascarpone, make sure it's Wisconsin born and raised. Because how else would satisfy your sweet cheese tooth than with products from the State of Cheese?
