Tiramisu: when the beer meets the dessert

Tiramisu

Tiramisu is a very popular dolce (dessert) in Italy and it’s particular taste is the reason it has spread world wide. It is known that many different versions exist and everyone claims their recipe is the best one. When we met Josh and the new Feral’s beer, the Karma Citra – a black IPA – we realised that having a slice of Tiramisu while drinking a beer was an interesting – but not a bad idea at all.

TIRAMISU’ & KARMA CITRA: A PERFECT MATCH!

When Josh came to visit us and he brought Feral’s  new beer:  the Karma Citra.

If someone comes to visit and brings some beer we definitely have to show the Italian hospitality and prepare something to eat while drinking beer.

Dark beers are preferably matched with desserts, and the coffee aroma of the Karma Citra reminded us of the Tiramisu. SO, to celebrate this new beer we thought we’d make a “new” version of the Tiramisu’.

DARK IPA TIRAMISU’

Ingredients:

  • 300 gr of Mascarpone, we know that maybe you would like to use the cream instead, but honestly, trust us, the mascarpone makes the difference;
  • 3 eggs;
  • 7 spoons of sugar;
  • Savoiardi biscuits;
  • A 4 pack of Karma Citra (why 4? you may use 1, 1/2 for the preparation and  then you want something to drink, don’t you ?)

First of all take the yolk from the eggs and save the white for later.

In a bowl mix the eggs yolk, the sugar and the mascarpone till it becomes a smooth cream . Have a sip of beer, cooking makes you thirsty.

In another bowl, using an electric mixer, whisk the eggs white until it forms stiff peaks. Pour it in the bowl with the mascarpone and eggs cream, and using a wooden spoon mix upwards till it becomes uniform.

Pour a beer into a container.

In a square tray spread a spoon of the cream on the bottom.

Soak the savoiardi biscuits in the beer but not too much or the tiramisu will be to runny. Lay the biscuits on the tray and spread on some more cream. Repeat it another two times. Finish with cream then dust it with dark cocoa powder.

Leave in the fridge to cool down.

It will go down perfectly with a cold Karma Citra. Salute.
