The Original Tiramisu Recipe from Le Beccherie
Il Tiramisu’ Legittimo delle Beccherie

The first and original recipe as printed
by the gourmet Giuseppe maffioli in 1981

This recipe, based on the original Italian recipe, suggests the use of raw eggs.
Using raw eggs could expose to the danger of salmonella.
We recommend either using eggs from a known source that guarantees salmonella-free eggs, or following my Tiramisu’ recipe instead.
Anna Maria’s Classic Tiramisu is prepared with zabaglione cooked bain-marie and whipped cream. This prevents the presence of any bacteria.


1 -1/2 cups (360 cc) espresso coffee

2 teaspoons sugar

4 egg yolks

1/2 cup (100 g) sugar

1 lb (450 g) mascarpone cheese at room temperature

30 savoiardi (ladyfinger cookies)

2 tablespoons bitter cocoa powder

The first known recipe for the original Tiramisu from the restaurant Le Beccherie was published in an issue of Vin Veneto magazine printed in the Spring of 1981. This is the earliest known recipe for TIRAMISU. There is no previous record of another TIRAMISU recipe.

Giuseppe Maffioli, renowned gourmet, food critic, author, and member of the prestigious Accademia della Cucina Italiana, wrote an article published in 1981 dedicated to coffee-based desserts. In this article, he called this recipe “Il Tiramisu’ Legittimo delle Beccherie” (The Legitimate Tiramisu of Le Beccherie).
