Tiramisu - 2008
You may find this hard to believe, but tirami s? (?pick me up?), far from being an Italian dessert of ancient vintage, was actually invented at El Toula restaurant in Treviso, just north of Venice, in the ?60s. It spread across the ocean like swine influenza, with such startling rapidity that by the ?80s, it was de rigueur in every Italian restaurant in the city. Catch a slammin? version at Frankie?s.
