Cheap(er) mascarpone?

rxrfrx | Jul 15, 2004 07:49 AM

I've recently perfected a recipe for tiramisu and I'm looking to get it down under $1 per serving... right now it's fabulously expensive to make, primarily because mascarpone seems to cost so much.

Without much looking, I've found Italian mascarpone in 250 g tubs at Whole Foods for like $4 a piece. Not so good.

Anyone know of a place to buy inexpensive imported cheese? I haven't seen mascarpone at trader joe's but maybe I didn't look hard enough.
