Ingredients: 500 grams mascarpone cheese, 5 very fresh eggs, 120 grams sugar, enough savoiardi ( lady fingers ) cookies to cover your pan twice plus a few extra just to be safe ( it took about 18 cookies to make one layer in the video ) , enough espresso (not too strong) to quickly dip your cookies in ( about 3 cups in our case ), a shot of Baileys, vanilla, and a couple spoons of sugar to add to the espresso, and enough cocao powder and chocolate shavings to sprinkle and decorate.

Tiramisu is a traditional Italian dessert. It requires no baking. It’s mostly a technique of beating, mixing, and assembling, using some cookies ( lady finger cookies ) and some eggs, yolk and whites separated, mascarpone cheese ( similar to cream cheese ) espresso or coffee, sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, etc. Did you know, according to most accounts, it was invented in a brothel? Tiramisu literally means “pick me up” or “pull me up”. That’s what it was intended to do for the clients. Despite it’s sordid past, it’s well loved around the world, and not so difficult to make. Chef Tony will walk you through it in this video recipe and also tell you a little about it on the way. Enjoy!
