What I love about tiramisu is that everyone makes it differently. While it is based on a few key ingredients – savoiardi biscuits, mascarpone, coffee – these ingredients are added in varying proportions, with other ingredients, and with other flavours. Some use cocoa while others use grated chocolate, or even chocolate sauce. Sometimes there is Marsala wine, sometimes Kahlua or Baileys, sometimes no alcohol. Different ratios of cream and mascarpone are used. Eggs may be cooked or raw or not used at all. Savoiardi might be replaced by fresh sponge cake. Fruit can be added – berries or lemon. Some people even prefer not to add coffee to their tiramisu.
Every tiramisu I have eaten is unique, with different flavours and textures. This inspired me to start this blog – to start an official search for tiramisu perfection, and along the way get to sample an awful lot of tiramisu. And also share lots of other things I encounter along the way, like good restaurants, travel experiences, art, music, recipes, shopping and friendships. Nice things.
