Tiramisu – 我的提拉米苏

Posted: December 30, 2008 in 和你在一起
第一次听说提拉米苏是很多年前在《青年文摘》里一篇爱情小说中……
 
爱情就像Tiramisu苦甜之间
那交错的滋味能够让人回味一天
 
所以一直都把这个词看成是一种小资的“浪漫爱情”,也觉得这样的“甜点”只有在特别的时候和爱人一起分享,就好像当年和路雪的”千层雪“一样……
 
The name Tiramisu is Italian and means "pull-me-up" (Tirami su), a reference to the effects of the sugar and espresso, and can be translated figuratively as "pick-me-up".
 

 
提拉米苏的由来,大家都比较钟爱这个版本:
 
Tiramisu最早起源于士兵上战场前,
心急如焚的爱人因为没有时间烤制精美的蛋糕,
只好手忙脚乱地胡乱混合了鸡蛋可可粉蛋糕条做成粗陋速成的点心,
再满头大汗地送到士兵的手中,
她挂着汗珠,
闪着泪光递上的食物虽然简单,
却甘香馥郁,
满怀着深深的爱意。
因而提拉米苏的其中的一个含义是“记住我”。
每当这个士兵在战场上吃到提拉米苏就会想起他的家,
想起家中心爱的人……
喜欢一个人,
跟他去天涯海角,
而不仅仅是让他记住,
所以,提拉米苏还有个含义是“带我走”。
带走的不只是美味,还有爱和幸福。
提拉米苏还有一个鲜为人知的传说,
传说提拉米苏是一款属于爱情的甜品,
吃到它的人,会听到爱神的召唤。
 
一层浸透了Espresso咖啡与酒(Masala、Rum或Brandy)、质感和海绵蛋糕有点像的手指饼干,一层混合了Mascarpone Cheese、蛋、鲜奶油和糖的芝士糊,层层叠上去,上头再撒一层薄薄的可可粉……这就是提拉米苏Tiramisu。
 
So, My Tiramisu, Pick me up and take me away with LOVE……
Happy Birthday to YOU! xxx
