Tiramisu: dessert layered with coffee-soaked ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese; Italian
I think a lot of people can recognize tiramisu by appearance or have at least heard of it a lot, but many of people do not know what it contains. To me, the most hidden part of it is the coffee flavor. If you speak Italian, however, you will know that tiramisu literally means “pick me up,” referring to coffee’s caffeinating properties, so that would give you a hint.
Tiramisu is an Italian dessert in which cakey-textured cookie biscuit type things (usually called ladyfingers but could have other names) are soaked in coffee or espresso then layered with a mascarpone cheese mixture and garnished with cocoa. So obviously you’d say, if you don’t like coffee-flavored desserts, do not eat this. I just always feel like it looks like cake and whipped cream only.
I pronounce this “teh-ruh-muh-soo” in my native American tongue but “teer-ah-mee-soo” is probably closer to its original form. In any case, a classic dessert that should be sampled at some point!
