Categories: Quick and Easy Tiramisù literally translated means “pick me up” in Italian. Tiramisù is a relatively new dessert in Italy, having been created in the 1960’s by Roberto Linguanotto, a pastry chef in Treviso. It is an extremely popular dessert and features on most Italian restaurant menus in Italy and abroad. It is quite easy to make and requires no cooking so is a nice dessert to make when the weather is hot.
