Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, and occasionally marsala wine or rum or some other form of alcohol. It is layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese, making a cake of several layers. Finally tiramisu is topped with unsweetened cocoa powder. Basically.
It is actually fairly easy to make this authentic(recette tiramisu chef) Italian dessert and there are many recipes available. Local grocery stores may not carry mascarpone although you can easily order it on line. Cream cheese is often a possible replacement but seems to take away from that unique desired flavor. If your store does carry it you will often find mascarpone near the cream or cottage cheese and it requires refrigeration like sour cream or milk. It is usually not near the cheese as the name may imply. It may also be found in the bakery section of your supermarket or grocery. If lost just ask the grocer or order at Amazon. There are recipes available to make your own mascarpone but I do not recommend doing to unless absolutely necessary.
Some recipes for tiramisu use different liquids such as strawberry or lemon juice in place of coffee for soaking the cake layers. A tiramisu layered with chocolate zabaglione custard is a popular variation. Again, there are so many different styles and ways to experiment with the basic recipe. If you have never had this delicious dessert, I certainly recommend starting with the basic one.
The goal of best tiramisu is to provide a balance of flavors between sweet zabaglione custard, the tang of coffee and alcohol, and the dusting of unsweetened cocoa. The layers alternate between cake and cream and the powdery cocoa topping offer a lovely texture experience for your mouth.

One special consideration in tiramisu is the fact it is not a baked or cooked dessert per se and thus the alcohol involved in the recipe will not be 'baked off' as with so many other desserts. Anyone who abstains will be well advised to try some ice cream instead.
