Aldo Campeol died at the age of 93. For 60 years he managed  Le Beccherie, the Treviso restaurant which is said to have invented the original recipe for Tiramisù. The famous dessert with eggs, mascarpone and ladyfingers was apparenly born in Treviso, near Venice about 50 years ago.

The most famous Italian dessert would have been invented in 1970 thanks to an ingenious idea by Aldo Campeol and his wife Alba. Or rather put together cocoa cream and biscuits soaked in coffee.

Legend has it that the original Tiramisu recipe was born by mistake. Indeed, due to a mistake by the cook. From the spoon he was holding some mascarpone cheese fell into a bowl with sugar and eggs.

But not everyone agree, as usual. According to the Friulian version, tiramisu is an invention of the Ristorante Roma in Tolmezzo, near Udine, at least twenty years earlier. Based on a recipe dated 1707 and still existing, which reads “tiramisu for two”.

Now there are thousands of different version, but the real tiramisu should be eaten with a spoon, like a trifle, it should be a soft creamy pudding and not a cake.
