Hi! I am Manuela from Italy.
My favourite Italian sweet is Tiramisù. Literally Tiramisù means: “get me up” and I think you will understand why after reading the ingredients:
Eggs, sugar, Mascarpone cheese (a creamy and sweet Italian cheese), Savoiardi biscuits soaked with coffee, a drop of Rum cacao and little pieces of chocolate for decorating.
A real panacea even for the saddest moods!!
A good tip for anyone preparing the dessert for a romantic dinner date, but feeling a bit shy: put more rum in with the mascarpone, and in the coffee. Then serve the Tiramisù accompanied by a glass of sweet, white wine!
You will see the effect…
