So what is Tiramisu?

Its popularity over the last three decades has resulted in Tiramisu adapting dishes such as cheese cakes, puddings, cakes and ice cream.

However the traditional version is a rich and elegant Italian dessert that is made by combining lady finger biscuits, espresso, mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, icing sugar, and vanilla. Through the grouping of these diverse ingredients, a profound yet sophisticated dish

The name ‘Tiramisu’ translates into ‘Pick-Me-up’. However, the reason why it got this name and the origins of Tiramisu creates some controversy.  Unlike other Italian dishes that have a lengthy culinary history, many claim this dish is relatively new, merely dating back to the 1970s. One account insists it was created in WW1 for the soldiers of war to give them energy to return home safely. Another account suggests it was created in 1971, in a restaurant called Le Beccherie, in Treviso. Besides the lack of knowledge of where this dish orientated from, it has become an internationally loved dish

One of the reasons this dish is so popular is the use of contrasting flavours. The delicate flavour of the mascarpone cheese, whipping cream and vanilla are contrasted with the subtle presence of sharp espresso and sweet cocoa powder. Brought together with the crunchy texture of the lady finger biscuits brings all the flavours and textures together creating a luxurious treat.
