    The Italian Center in Edmonton makes a pretty amazing (and beautiful) Tiramisu.

    It sounds like I’ve had as many bad tiramisus as you have, but when it’s done well it’s SO good! My favourite was a not-so-traditional one they used to make at 4th St. Rose (remember that?); served in a thin almond cookie cone. Num.

    Im actually making this tomorrow! Made my own mascarpone from heavy cream, heated over a double boiler with lemon juice, and then strain with a sieve layered with many layers of damp cheese cloth. Took about 24 hr to firm in the fridge, but it’s a good way to use up heavy cream that was a couple of days from its best before.

    I had a really good vanilla tiramisu in Victoria once. It was amazing.

    OK, I’ll show my lack of sophistication: I don’t think I’ve _ever_ eaten a tiramisu that disappointed me. Maybe I’ve just been lucky.

    I used to make one with Sambuca and raspberries back in the day. Maybe it’s time to trot it out again.

    Made this for dessert at last night’s Xmas dinner and it was YUMMY! Thanks for the recipe and the inspiration for trying a new dessert.

    This was a hit for Christmas – my guests couldn’t believe I’d never made it before. I think Ali’s new stovetop espresso maker helped, because the espresso was DYNAMITE. But we did have a funny ‘incident’ while making the custard. It seemed to be taking a while, so Ali turned up speed on the mixer. The next part happened in slowmo: The bowl began to spin in the water and the mixture started creeping up the sides of the bowl, until a goodly portion of it spun right out of onto the stovetop, the floor, us…. It was a lesson well-learned! And the tiramisu was a hit anyway.

    You have just given me the gift of validation! I made a raspberry tiramisu last year for Christmas dinner (essentially the same as your recipe, but I threw some raspberries on top of the mascarpone mixture, and used brandy instead of marsala, then decorated it with shaved chocolate and more raspberries. It was a hit, so I made it again this year – a great make-ahead, and totally decadent. It may be a new Christmas tradition for our family.

    Of course you could just go ahead and make it “too boozy”. After all it is New Years. Hope it’s happy. GREG
