  • The preparation can be found at the end of the video.
 

The Milan experience

Shopping, History and Tiramisu


 

Confession Time: This was my first time in my life making Tiramisu, or let us say the first time ever of me trying to cook something from scratch. I learned how to make Tiramisu in 5 steps: watching a 5-minute video, 10 minutes of shopping, 10 minutes of preparations and just about 10 minutes of assembling everything together. I was so proud of my accomplishment that I was telling everyone how now I’m a pro baker. So everyone started coming over to try my cooking experiment.  Since that first time 1 month ago I’ve done other 4, even bringing the famous Italian dish to Christmas dinners. What I want to say with this is that if I managed to not screw up this, anyone can do it. 

 

For my birthday I also received a cooking book, so my next step is widening my horizons in the kitchen and try doing some salty recipes as well. If it is a success I’ll share some with you here on the blog, if not you’ll never read about cooking anymore on this blog.

 

Chrissy Teigen I’m coming for you. 
 

Thanks to Iana and my sister who kept insisting I try preparing the Tiramisu for the Mamma Mia video project and also acted as guinea pigs.
