Italian cooking is never complete without a mention of this famed dessert. Tira-mi-su, which means ‘lift me up’, was so named because its ingredients — cream, cheese, espresso and wine, are all mood boosters! the traditional recipe uses a rich, soft cheese called mascarpone; and an amber-coloured sicilian wine called marsala. I have used cream cheese and port wine as local substitutes.
