Tutto Buono Tiramisu

Michelle and Geralynn natives of Monterey, CA, developed their passion for Sicilian food at a young age while working in the family’s restaurant cooking alongside their parents and grandmothers at their home. Growing up in a large Italian family, with roots from Sicily, food was always the center of everything. While working in the family restaurant, Michelle and Geralynn grew to love the industry and became passionate about bringing the best local organic ingredients while cooking their family recipes. Fast forward twenty years later they decided to launch the second location of Tutto Buono which was renamed Tutto Buono Eataliano in 2020 bringing old world and new world Italian street food with three generations of Sicilian family recipes. It’s simple! Food is love. Bringing family to the table while sharing great story’s and conversations and creating great memories.

12 egg yolks

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 lbs mascarpone cheese

3 cups strong espresso cooled

4-5 Tbsp dark rum

48-60 packaged lady fingers

Bittersweet chocolate shavings for garnish

In a large bowl using a electric mixer with the whisk attachment, beat eggs yolks and sugar on high until thick, pale, light and fluffy. About 10 minutes. Add mascarpone cheese and blend on low speed for about 5 minutes. Add rum, blend on low for another 2-3 minutes until the rum is incorporated into the mixture.

In a 1/2 sheet pan spread a 1/2 inch thick layer of the mascarpone cheese mixture. Dip lady fingers in espresso for about 4 seconds. Layer the soaked lady finger over the cheese mixture then repeat step 1 and 2 again. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours. Before serving grate chocolate shavings over the top.
