Tiramisù with “Mixed barries”

Tiramisù with barries

Even if the "classic" Tiramisù is considered one of the best known and delicious Italian desserts, in the recent years many styles of the original recipe have been served in many restaurants all around Italy. Here you will find a style that will make you forget for a moment the original one. (A recipe from “Tiramisu Amore Mio” by Varinia Cappelletti & Edoardo Cecotto.)
