The most delicate and delicious dessert Tiramisu comes fromsunny Italy. There, to cook this cake, use the fresh soft Mascarpone cheese, which goes to the cream, the Italian Savoyardi airy Italian cookie, which serves as the basis of the cake, and the wine of Marsala for impregnating the cakes. And because of the uniqueness of the ingredients that make up the cake, it is difficult to reproduce its recipe at home. Cheese Mascarpone fat content of 55% is produced only in Lombardy, on the Apennine peninsula. This sort of cheese is a cross between butter and very fatty sour cream. Unlike other types of cheese, Mascarpone is produced by processing cream, not milk. Italian savoryardi cookies are made in the form of tubes. Very rarely the cook, for lack of cookies, use biscuit cakes. Marsala wine is popular with confectioners as well as rum, cognac and liqueurs, and it is often called culinary wine. Marsala is produced since 1773 in Sicily, near the city of Marsala. Therefore, in our days the real classic Tiramisu can be tried only in Italy. As you understand, both Mascarpone cheese, Savoyardi's cookies, and Marsala wine in our country are almost impossible to buy. Although recently in some large supermarkets you can find even such rare products. But if you can not accurately reproduce the recipe of the Italian cake Tiramisu, you can try to find an alternative to the unique ingredients and prepare this dessert at home. At home, Mascarpone can be replaced with cream or fat cottage cheese, Savoyardi - biscuit cakes, and Marsala - cognac or liqueur Amaretto. Most of us compare the Italian dessert prepared with these products to nothing! But we assure you that even an alternative recipe will be very close to the original.
