Recipe can be prepared in advance and refrigerated just before guests arrive.

To section grapefruit and orange: Cut off peel and white pith from orange and grapefruit. Holding them over a bowl, cut segments (suprêmes) from between membranes and reserve until needed.

For pleasant alternatives to Canadian Mascarpone, try Ricotta, Cream Cheese or Baker’s Cheese.
