|Cicara Caffeteria's tiramisù Strawberry tiramisù Katia Amore's tiramisù|
There are high days, there are holidays and then there are "take me high" or tiramisù days.
Now this most beloved of Italian desserts is to officially get its own day and, just in case you need an excuse to make or buy and eat it, that day is 21st March. It will be celebrated in 34 locations around the world and is the initiative of Eataly and Clara and Gigi Padovani, who have written a book about the dessert and its history, including the hotly disputed topic of which region of Italy can claim to have invented it.
I've made traditional tiramisù, have followed Katia Amore's recipe for ricotta tiramisù and Matthew Fort's for a strawberry version, which I in turn adapted into an apricot one.
I'm not brave enough to join in the argument about the origins of the dish - I'm just going to continue to enjoy it!
