What is mascarpone?

Mascarpone is one of the foods that make the food police quiver and stop dead in their tracks. It is a fresh, very rich cow’s milk cheese — double or triple cream (60% to 75% milk fat) — that is sold in teensy little containers in this country. Its texture resembles a sticky pudding and it is the color of cream.

Here is some links to further definitions of Mascarpone

And what about the Beans?
Vanilla Beans are only second to Saffron as the highest priced spice on earth. I my self do not like vanilla flavored things, like ice cream, lotions, puddings, etc. But when you use real vanilla beans in your reciepe, and you have access to your newly created vanilla sugar, life will never be the same.

Here are some links to all things vanilla bean.

So now you got all the stuff you need, a little bit of background on your ingredients.. now what?

Listen to the podcast to learn the reciepe.
