Cara’s Cucina: Tiramisu

Today on Cara’s CucinaCara Di Falco teaches us how to make Tiramisu!

“The story on this one is really one of circumstance,” Di Falco states in the recipe’s accompanying blog. “It was our first night in Italy, exhausted from our flight and first day of touring we had a quiet dinner at our hotel; including the most amazing tiramisu any of us had ever had!”

The recipe was so good, that on their second day, they begged the chef to switch his menu and make it again. “Thankfully he not only obliged – he shared his recipe with me,” Di Falco recalls.
