Tiramisu’ is possibly the most well known and much loved of all ‘dolce” Italian recipes. When we think of something sweet with an Italian flavour, Tiramisu comes to mind. Every Italian’s obsession with dark and beautiful espresso, which is the key ingredient, gives this recipe a rich and beautifully rounded flavour. It can certainly help to perk up even the dullest of days.
Tiramisu’ literally translates to “lift me up”. So the quantity and quality of the espresso is important to ensure this dessert is perfect. The coffee began more like an infusion, really light in flavour. But now it is a lot more robust and as most Italians will tell you, there is really only one way to make it… Strong, Dark and Short!!!
Here you can find the traditional recipe but remember to be creative with your food… some tips to make it even more tasty is to add slices of strawberry in between the layers, or maybe flakes of dark chocolate. Anything is possible as long as the first bite leaves you in no doubt of the key ingredient that makes this beautiful dish SO good…… COFFEEEEEE!!!!!
