Unfortunately, mascarpone isn’t always available at your neighborhood supermarket, although it has become much more available in recent years. General instructions for hunting down mascarpone in your area include checking with gourmet shops or large chain grocery store delicatessens or select cheese areas. You can also check the internet for Italian delicatessens and markets.
