As you maybe know Italy has many differences from region to region. These differences deal with language (or dialects!), traditions, way of living and of thinking, and of course, food.
Let’s focus on the part of the meal which I personally prefer (ok, it depends on the meal: I would change with pleasure my dessert with a good risotto alla pescatora, I admit it!). Anyway, I love desserts! Every Italian region has its typical recipes, but there are many Italian specialities which are became national (and/or international) that you can find everywhere.
Here’s my top five Italian desserts, which includes both of the mentioned kinds of desserts. Which one do you prefer?
Tiramisù: one of the best Italian Desserts!
Tiramisù is maybe the most popular dessert among Italian specialties; it deserves the first position in my Top-5-italian desserts-list! Tiramisù’s original recipe comes from the northern region of Veneto.
