Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !


Traditional tiramisu


Here is the traditional recipe of tiramisu.

The main ingredient is patience: To grate the chocolate, to bring all the ingredients together, and to let the tiramisu rest for 4 hours without eating it. But it is worth it!

About 18 ladyfinger cookies (the quantity will depend on the size of the dish)
2 eggs
250 g mascarpone
20 cl strong coffee
150 g sugar
100 g grated dark chocolate (70%)
2 soup spoons bitter cocoa powder
4 soup spoons Amaretto liquor

Beat the egg yolks with 50 g sugar, until the mixture gets white.
Add the amaretto, stir well, and the mascarpone little by little.

Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat them until stiff. (Remember, it is ready when you can put the bowl upside down and the eggs don't fall).

Pour little by little the rest of the sugar, keep beating until the mixture is firm again.
Add them little by little to the other mixture.

Pour the coffee in a plate and soak the ladyfinger cookies. Place them in the bottom of a dish, they must cover it all. Pour half the cream. Cover with grated chocolate and some cocoa. Repeat the procedure. Finish with a layer of coca.
Store at least 4 hours in the fridge.

Some ideas: you can use a large dish or several verrines. It's much easier (and more elegant) to serve verrines than to cut slices in a dish. It is also better to serve the tiramisu the day after. The perfumes are stronger. So, don't hesitate to prepare it the day before you plan to serve it.

Bon appétit !!!
