Personal Notes:
I love Tiramisu, but it has to be authentic. The best I ever had was at Amerigo's restaurant. It is the closest thing to homemade. While I suggest you trying to make it yourself, if you're in a pinch, go to Amerigo's. You can buy it by the pan, but it isn't cheap! Great dessert to top off any Italian meal! I never had this as a child. In fact, I never heard of it until I moved to Nashville. It is rich and creamy, so you probably can't eat too much of it, unless that is all you have to eat.
