Lift me up, pick me up, eat it up!

Several sources (from Vin Veneto, dated 1981, to the Italian Academy of Giuseppe Maffioli and several cuisine websites) claim that tiramisu was born in Treviso at "Le Beccherie" restaurant in the hands of the confectioner Roberto Linguanotto, also known as Loli. Other sources report the creation of the cake to have originated in the city of Siena.

All I know if that this is the closest recipe I could find that was like my nanna’s (unfortunately she never wrote down her recipes). I got the recipe for this from my old boss when I worked in an Italian restaurant! It was a huge hit and a lot of people just came in for coffee and Tiramisu.

Hope you enjoy!
