There are many desserts in Italian culture and history, making an almost endless list of decadence and flavor. One of the most famous desserts around the world is Tiramisu, a splendid and rich dish with a sweet, creamy taste. Italian for “pick-me-up”, this dessert is notarized for its heavily sweet taste, light texture, and the energy associated with it.

What is Tiramisu?

Tiramisu is a combination of ladyfinger biscuits dipped in coffee – usually espresso, layered with mascarpone cheese, eggs and sugar whipped together, and flavored with cocoa or chocolate. The flavor of coffee is usually strong throughout the meal, as the ladyfingers are soaked through with the espresso. Tiramisus appearance is soft and pillowing, with layers of the cookies, coffee and the cheese. The top of the cake is usually covered or sprinkled in a layer of cocoa and often topped with chocolate drizzle, not only tasting decadent, but also looking so.

Where does Tiramisu originate from?

When considering where the dish comes from, there is no true alocatiswer. Whether it’s location or time period, no one can truly conclude where it came from. There are many who state that Tiramisu originates from Italy, and is tied to potentially be created in the late 1600’s to early 1700’s. Aside from the taste, presentation and ingredients, an interesting aspect about this creation is that not many people can agree on when it was first created. While some tie the dish to earlier times, many argue that Tiramisu dates back to the mere 1970’s. A particular restaurant is noted with creating the scrumptious dessert in 1971, the building called Le Beccherie, located in northern Italy. This seems more likely, as most Italian dishes hold a lengthy history, and there are many issues with the notion of it being an older dish from the 1700’s, mostly dealing with the origination of the ingredients and issues with the spoiling of them, if they were to be transported.

Wherever the dish may originate from, the one thing that is inarguable is the delectable taste that accompanies this savory and delicate dessert. Tiramisu is a fantastic dish for celebrations, whether it is for a dish on its own or following a dinner, this dessert holds energy from the eggs, coffee, and cocoa as ingredients. It can definitely be used as a pick-me-up, as its catch-phrase may be used, or as a delightful way of winding down a day through thoughtful celebration with friends.
