One for the weekend friends! We couldn’t take Gennaro all the way to Italy without indulging in this classic. This is also one of the recipes we had as a popular request for Gennaro to make from you guys! So here it is, super simple, super tasty, super Italian.

Gennaro in Italy
Over the coming months we will posting a series of Gennaro’s recipes from Italy, some of which you, the audience, have specifically asked for and others are Gennaro doing what the Italians do best – sourcing good ingredients and making simple, bold dishes with little effort and time involved.

Rather than cut these videos right down, we have left them a little longer and kept them relaxed. We think watching Gennaro in Italy is a glorious thing, and Gennaro does such a great job at being both inspiring and entertaining. So sit back and enjoy these as they roll out – we would love to know what you think.

  1. Italian verb 'Tirare' has the meaning of 'pull'. 'Mi' means 'me' and 'su' means 'up' in italian. 'Tira' is 3rd person singular form of 'Tirare', and it means 'he/she/it pulls'.
    So the name of 'Tiramisu' means 'it pulls me up' , which means-the deliciousness of it makes me to feel flowing up to the sky or whatever.
    Just for your information. Love you Gennaro from Korea!

  2. I love the enthusiasm M. Contaldo shows while he's cooking. I also love the simplicity (and the awesome taste) of this recipe. I always made mine with Marsala, so I gladly learned several things watching this video. Thanks !
