We love to take inspiration for our dishes from authentic Italian sources, and this delicious tiramisù recipe is a treasured family secret of our head chef Roberta. Passed down the paternal line, by her nonna Carmela, this decadent dessert transports Roberta right back to her childhood. Squabbling around the table with her numerous siblings, the D’Elia clan would fall silent when Nonna Carmela’s tiramisù was brought out. The children knew that if they played their cards right they may even get a second piece of the pudding!
Though now enjoyed throughout Italy, as evidenced by its prominence in Roberta’s youth, tiramisù was first a leitmotif of Northern Italian gastronomy. Originating from Veneto, the name is derived from the traditional dialect of Treviso where ‘tireme su’ means ‘pick me up’, and we can’t help but agree that this tasty treat does exactly what it promises. Created as a nineteenth century aphrodisiac by the maîtresse of a pleasure house, tiramisù quickly became a popular dessert enjoyed by all, despite its somewhat risqué origin story.
Combining creamy mascarpone cheese, rich coffee and deliciously smooth dark chocolate, this decadent dolce is sure to make you feel merry on a cold winter evening. The rich Marsala wine, which is infused throughout, is a sweet, fortified variety which comes from Sicily but has been favoured by Venetian chefs in this special recipe for centuries. Be whisked away to nonna Carmela’s cosy kitchen with our indulgent tiramisù.
