The origins of tiramisu

Tiramisu is one of the most popular Italian desserts around today. A mainstay staple in thousands of restaurants around the world, tiramisu offers a combination of coffee, cocoa and sweet mascarpone for a perfectly delicious marriage of flavours.

Tiramisu’s literal translation is ‘lift me up’, which is exactly what it does as the comfort food of choice for many. The exact origins of the recipe are somewhat vague, but the general consensus is that it came from the town of Treviso in the Veneto region during the 1960s, although others claim that a form of tiramisu can be traced all the way back to the 17th century.

Mascherpa – Milan’s tiramisu shop

Head to Italy, and you’ll be greeted by the world’s greatest dessert shops. Milan’s Navigli district is home to Mascherpa, a small but bustling café that specialises in innovative new ways to sample tiramisu.

The shop always attracts a big crowd looking for a quick fix of delicious desserts, with its tiramisu especially popular. It offers jars in a variety of flavours, including matcha, mixed berries and Nutella. It also serves a deconstructed tiramisu where you get to do all of the dipping, with freshly brewed coffee and mascarpone on the side.

If you are in the area, a nice hot drink and a delectable dessert at Mascherpa will set you up for the rest of the day. It does a range of sweet treats, so there’s plenty of choice.

The best part is that all of the shop’s mini tiramisus are perfectly portable in little pots, making them ideal to eat on the go.
