In any culture, desserts hold a special place because they have the potential to turn a simple meal into a memorable one. No special occasion is complete without a spread of luscious desserts, including Italian treats like the Tiramisu , Strawberry Tart , Almond Biscotti with Cappuccino and Chocolate Ricotta Torte .

Italian cooking is never complete without the mention of this famed dessert that is as popular beyond the shores of italy as it is within Italy. Literally translated Tiramisu means “lift me up”. Tira mi su was named for its restorative properties - cream, cheese and wine that were thought to be excellent for those in poor health. The addition of expresso should give a lift to those in the best of health!

Chocolate Ricotta Torte , a favourite Italian dessert of a sinfully rich chocolate cake sandwiched with a fruity ricotta filling topped with coffee cream. "ricotta" is a fresh and creamy soft italian cheese similar to cottage cheese, but with a sweeter flavour, ideal for savouries and desserts.
