TIRAMISU ALLE FRAGOLE


I am currently reading and enjoying Matthew Fort's Sweet Honey, Bitter Lemons. It is the story of the author's journey around Sicily on a Vespa and the recipes he collected on the way.

As soon as I saw the recipe for this strawberry tiramisù I knew I had to try it and what better occasion than Gina's birthday today? I can't give you the copyright recipe here but can tell you that it works, is quick and easy and was a big hit with Gina [who is quite a cook, as some of you will remember]. My only adaptation was to slosh in a drop or several of Mandarinetto liqueur, as is my wont.

I am away from my Vermont kitchen writing and cooking from Ortigia. I found your blog and am pleased to know about it. I'm trying to sort out Siciian desserts for a piece I'm writing. This post is helpful.

Thanks
