While I devoured my seriously scrumptious dessert, Mr C suggested sharing the amore with other tiramisu lovers. What is the perfect tiramisu?, we wondered, and where could we find it? How long has it been around, and what’s the traditional Italian recipe? And so, feeling warm and fuzzy from the chianti, I began my quest for the greatest tiramisu…
