  • Tasting the Original Tiramisu at Le Beccherie – "Many so-called Italian dishes aren’t really Italian at all. Spaghetti and meatballs, chicken parmesan and loads of other dishes you’ll find on the menus of many Italian restaurants in the United States are modifications of classic Italian recipes because immigrants had to work with the ingredients they had. I always thought that tiramisu, perhaps the most famous Italian dessert found just about everywhere in Italy, was also an Italian-American creation. It was only a few years ago that I learned tiramisu was invented here in Italy, and in a nearby town to where I’ve been living for the last seven years no less. The very restaurant where the coffee-flavored dessert was invented in the 1960s still serves up that very recipe today. So off we went to sample the Le Beccherie tiramisu." – By – "About Us" – Source: Luxe Adventure Traveler – "Adventure Travel with a Glass of Wine"

  • Tiramusu – "is a popular coffee-flavored Italian dessert. It is made of ladyfingers (Italian: Savoiardi, [savoˈjardi]) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa.

  • Tiramisu Recipe & Video – "Tiramisu (pronounced "tih-ruh-mee-SOO") was invented in the 1960's at the El Touga restaurant in Treviso, Italy. Literally translated, Tiramisu means "pick me up" or "carry me up", which probably refers to the jolt you get after eating espresso and alcohol laced ladyfingers. It is often called an 'Italian Trifle" because, like any trifle, it has layers. In this case, ladyfingers (finger-shaped cookies) are layered with a custard that has been mixed with mascarpone cheese. You can garnish the top of the Tiramisu with a dusting of cocoa powder and/or shaved chocolate, and a scattering of fresh raspberries (if they are in season). It is a good idea to make the Tiramisu the day before serving so all the flavors have time to soften and mingle and it has become firm enough to slice easily. If you want a firmer Tiramisu, place it in the freezer for an hour or two before serving. " – "Stephanie Jaworski - about us" – Source: – "Award Winning Baking & Dessert Video Recipes"
