Tiramisu Recipes from Italian Friends and Family is guaranteed to whet your appetite. This lovely book by Martina Munzittu contains twenty-five recipes for just about any occasion. The author collected these “must have” recipes from family and friends who enjoy baking this sweet. These are not only the regular ones either. They include alcohol and fruity variations, gluten- free and low fat alternatives, fun shaped children’s tiramisus and even pancakes. The author explains what tiramisus are made of, and there’s a helpful Frequently Asked Questions section. Monica’s Coconut Tiramisu, Dahlia’s Tiramisu Cupcakes, and Maria Grazia’s Baileys Tiramisu are a few of the treats which are named after the persons who contributed the recipes.

One of the things I like about Tiramisu Recipes from Italian Friends and Family is the appealing photo which accompanies every recipe. Martina Munzittu and her family and friends took pictures of all the desserts they baked. A few of the ones which flopped were included in a nice section called Tiramisu Disasters. The author explains that success often comes after a few failed attempts, so never give up. Another terrific part of the book shows you how to organise a Tiramisu Party. It has innovative ideas for invitations, buffets and a fun tiramisu quiz to play with your guests. The author’s Practical Notes will come in handy when planning your party. You’ll be very impressed with Martina’s Munzittu’s book. I enjoy baking and intend to try my hand at making a few of these treats.
