History and curiosity
The invention of tiramisù is Tuscan. Sugar, coffee and cream were the ingredients of the "soup of the Duke", prepared in the 1600s by the Guild of Confectioners of Siena, on the occasion of the visit of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. The Grand Duke himself made it one of his favorite desserts and brought his recipe to Florence .... and from there it spread throughout Italy.
The name owes it to the Venetian courtiers because the presence of the coffee made it stimulating, therefore it "pulled up"! Northern Italy added mascarpone and crumbly biscuits to the recipe, later replaced by Piedmontese "ladyfingers".
Tiramisu is the most famous dessert in the world. In Europe the 5th best known Italian word. The Bran Academy has certified that it is present as "gastronomic Italianism" in 23 different languages.
On March 21st we celebrate the "tiramisù day" created by Eataly.
