Pick-Me-Up




Everybody knows that Tiramisu means 'pick-me-up' in Italian but did you know that the second most known dessert to come out of Italy (gelato being the first) hasn’t been around for very long? The exact origin is unknown but we do know the first recipe published was only in 1983 in the classic recipe book, 'I Dolci de Veneto' by Giovanni Capnist. But wherever and whenever it was invented I'm just thrilled it’s around now. It’s easy to become a connoisseur here because it's served at practically every restaurant and each one makes it slightly different. My picture here is from a little sidewalk cafe and it was delicious. Check out this web page recipe with step-by-step pictures to make it easy.
