1. bob discovered tiramisu in Rome in 1979-80 way ahead of most americans. An apprenticeship with nadia got him started and he went solo in Munich the following year, managing to find the right stuff for production in Italian shops in the city center. This recipe is from the plastic wrap lady finger ("savoiardi") package in Italian, still in the dr bob archives. It was spelled "tiramesu", not a mispelling since independent confirmation of the "e" for an "i" in another recipe is also filed there. Must be dialect. Decades later affluent Americans everywhere have discovered this dish. But meanwhile other problems have forced a few changes in its safe home kitchen production [bag egg tiramisu].
