Italian food is as famous as Italian fashion and some of the dishes Rome has given to the world are not only delicious but rule the food chains around the Globe. Romans introduced some of the best food recipes and it was the Romans who introduced flour mills to the world. But still i think there is lot more then we find in history books, Roman culture was more then just the wine, fruit and sex what we see in the movies and books. Before Muslims Rome was the only power which ruled Euro Asia and Africa, but for some reason we don't find as much written about their food as it should or we don't we intend to forget and this important issue. One thing i don't understand is why do we ignore the important issue which an civilization thrive upon and as history suggests civilizations have been destroyed because of it as well.
Tiramisu cake is an Italian dessert meaning "cheer me up" and believe me it does cheer you up. This delicious dessert was introduced in 1960s in the region of Veneto Italy.

1: Mascarpone 250g
2: Cold coffee 2 cups (strong, espresso or bold roast)
3: Vanilla essence 3tsp
4: Whole milk 1/3 cup
5: Double cream 568ml
6: Caster sugar 4tbsp
7: Lady finger cookies / Sponge finger 16
8: Dark chocolate shavings 1tbsp
9: Cocoa powder 2tsp
Make coffee and set it aside in a large bowl to cool.
In a deep bowl add mascarpone, milk, cream, vanilla essence, whisk until everything completely combined and have the consistency of thickly whipped cream.
Add sugar and mix well.
Get your serving dish ready. Put the coffee into a shallow dish and dip in a few sponge fingers at a time, turning for a few seconds until they are nicely soaked, but not soggy. Layer these into your dish until you have used half the biscuits, then spread over half of the creamy mixture. Using the coarse side of the grater, grate over most of the chocolate. Then repeat the layers (you should use up all the coffee), finishing with the creamy layer.
Cover and chill for a few hrs or overnight. This can now be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days. To serve, dust with cocoa powder and grate over the remainder of the chocolate.
