“Reiner: And, of course, there is now tiramisu!

Hanks: What is tiramisu?

Reiner: You’ll find out.

Reiner: You’ll love it.”

When I first tried the delicacy, It became unforgettable. Some years later, I came about this recipe, presented to me by some Italian relatives of my daughter’s husband’s. The adaptation into a Brazilian version did not take long to come up with.
