Tiramisu, literally translated as “pick me up”, is made of ladyfingers biscuits, also known as sponge fingers, dipped in coffee. The sponge cookies layered with the airy cream made by whipping together egg yolks, sugar and mascarpone cheese and sprinkled with cocoa. (Image: Shutterstock)

According to the BBC, the dish was the result of an accident while Alba Campeol and desert’s co-inventor Chef Roberto Linguanotto were making vanilla ice cream. Linguanotto accidentally dropped some mascarpone cheese into a bowl of eggs and sugar. He liked how the mixture tasted and told Alba Campeol. The two then added the coffee-soaked ladyfingers and perfected the desert which is now well-known as Tiramisu all over the world. (Image: Shutterstock)

The dish was first added in the restaurant’s menu in 1972. Numerous varieties of tiramisu exists and some feature alcohol but the original recipe – certified by Italian Academy of Cuisine in 2010 – was alcohol free. (Image: Shutterstock)
