Tiramisù is probably the most popular Italian dessert. In this post we will share with you infromation about is and one of our favourite places.
ITS DISPUTED ORIGIN
Savoiardi bisquits, eggs, marcarpone cheese, coffee, bitter cacao powder. We all know the ingredients of this fantastic treat.
What is not easy to know is the origin of its recipe: which region should get credit for inventing it is still a matter of dispute.
Does is come from Veneto or Friuli Venezia Giulia? The two Italian regions have been fighting over its paternity for decades.
