Grandma’s Tiramisù
Chef Sandro’s nonna’s recipe
Thursday, August 5

Its true origins are still unknown. But its fame throughout the world is undeniable: Tiramisù — meaning literally pick-me-up — is one of the greatest desserts of the Western gastronomic cannon. This coffee-flavored, layered dessert is believed to have first appeared in Italy in the late 1960s, although there is no mention of it in print before the 1980s. By the end of the 1990s, as the renaissance of Italian cuisine was sweeping across the globe, it had become firmly established as a benchmark among Italian cakes.

For this week’s Wine Dinner To-Go, Chef Sandro will be sharing one of his most coveted recipes: His grandmother’s very own recipe for tiramisù, the very one that he grew up eating in his family’s home in Italy.

You may have had tiramisù before but never like this!

ROMA wine director Jeremy is still teaching in Italy this week (he’ll be back for his bi-monthly FREE tasting at the restaurant on Tuesday, August 10; an intimate guided wine dinner in the restaurant’s private room on Wednesday, August 11; and a virtual wine dinner on Thursday, August 12). Use the link below to email him to reserve. He is seven hours ahead of Texas time but he will get back to you with a confirmation. And rest assured we’ll have your Wine Dinner To-Go ready and waiting for you! Thank you for your continued support!
