Enjoy the flavors of fall during National Mushroom Month in September with Crave Brothers Creamy Mascarpone Mushroom Soup. Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone and mushrooms have an affinity for each other.

Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone is made from fresh, sweet cream and adds its rich flavor and texture to recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts. Creamy Mascarpone Mushroom Soup combines green onions sautéed in butter, assorted wild mushrooms, chicken broth, port wine, heavy cream, lemon juice and the artisanal flavor of Crave Brothers Mascarpone. The soup is seasoned with dried thyme and black pepper. Serve it with crusty bread for a luxurious appetizer or a satisfying main course.
