Tiramisu’ 2007



Dear friends, Tiramisù is one of the most appreciated italian desserts and I know that you probably know it and you have already tried almost once in your life, but.....
 The Tiramisù I propose to you today is something special that I’m sure you have never tried, I’m sure because it’s the result of a long study of my pastry chef, Antonio Calosi, Italian pastry and chocolate champion ( http://www.antoniocalosi.com/). When I tasted his tiramisù during a Cordon Bleu pastry class, I thought that it was one the best dessert I’ve ever tasted.
Today I prepared the Antonio Tiramisù, I’ve done some photo of it for helping you to make the dessert at home..   So, please, try and let me know if I’m right!! :)
(I ‘ve written some tip for food processor steps, but you can hand make the dessert in the same way)
