Making a dessert

14 Apr

Dear friends,

we didn’t forget French BLT sandwiches and our promise for a good recipe, so we organised a dessert preparation to show you how to make our typical Italian “tiramisù”: its name could be translated into “cheer me up!” for its good effects on people who eat it ;)!
Pupils enjoyed it as their snack during break time 🙂

It doesn’t need any cooking, just a fridge where to keep it for some two or three hours before serving it. The basic recipe can vary according to taste, some people use “malt coffee” instead of real strong coffee, or add some sweet liqueur. You can also use ricotta cheese instead of mascarpone cheese – can you buy them in your countries?

We hope you can taste our fabulous dessert 🙂 !!!

    That looks really delicious. And it’s a perfect activity! 🙂 So, we now have Italian tiramisu, French-style BLT, German Christmas cookies … What do you think about a tasting session? Not sure if our school is ready for video conference yet though…

    Hi! You know what? The funniest thing to me was seeing that at the end of the activity everybody jumped on the cream bowl to taste the cream with their fingers!!! 🙂 Do you do that when your mum makes a cake? 😉

    Hi! Another funny thing was watching Elia trying to separate the mascarpone cheese from the spoon which wouldn’t come off! 😉

    What a team! Hats off from France!
    Tiramisù, my favourite dessert 🙂 Now I know how to make it properly 🙂

    One detail though: do you really take Tiramisù to school for a snack at break time? Where do you keep it as it has to be fresh and cool?

    @ Marie-France: well, Tiramisù was a little bit of their snack last Monday as an exception, just because it was a special activity and the school is provided with a small fridge 🙂 Unfortunately, we only had the time to make one (they had brought the ingredients for more!) so it had to be divided into 23 bits … Carlo said he only had some “atoms” from it ;), but they all said it tasted really good 😀
    @ Mrs.U: wouldn’t a tasting session be excellent for a real meeting? 😉

    OK, I give in…we’re going to follow the instructions of the Italian team and prepare tiramisù on Thursday. 🙂 A little hint to the German team: that dessert doesn’t look well, it looks good. Be prepared for a bit of revision … 😉 Maybe someone of you remembers my drawing of that flower with the very big nose 😀
