From New York to Trieste, 21st March marks the festival of the world most beloved Italian dessert. In the coming months will also start a #tiramisutour

Tiramisu is the world most beloved Italian dessert, whose history has been shrouded in mystery for many years. It was invented in Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, but it was Veneto to get it out in Italy and across the five continents. These two regions of North-Eastern Italy are still battling over the invention of a delicacy which can boast many different interpretation. Tiramisu is now the symbol of a great Italian culinary tradition that the world has adopted making it an international success.
