1. Tiramisù Intro: Welcome to the class Tiramisù from Scratch, we're filming straight from Southern Italy. My name is Jessica and I've been living in Southern Italy for the past decade, and this is my cousin, Nicoletta. Nicoletta is an aspiring pastry chef and baker. She loves to bake. In fact, in our family, she's the cake girl that we always call - Nicoletta can you make the cakes? Nicoletta is going to be the star in this video. I'm just really going to be the helper and I wanted to translate every once in awhile to help everyone understand. So it's like pick me up like pickup your, you know, your humor. So in this class you are going to learn how to make tiramisù from scratch. We're also going to teach you the typical ingredients that you use in Italy. We're going to show you what we use here and also show you what you would use in your country or in the United States. We're also going to be teaching a little bit of Italian along the way, at least Nicoletta as she speaks Italian. So this class is kinda like a mix of culture and food and everything involving Italian. We're also going to be answering several questions along the way about tiramisu. Like if you can use cooked egg instead of raw egg or if you put alcohol in it and several things like that. This class is ideal for those who have never made tiramisù before. Also those who have never cooked Italian before. Nicoletta is going to be showing you step-by-step how to cook, how to bake and the process of cooking. So this is really great for beginners. So let's get started and talk about the ingredients that you will use to make tiramisu in the next lesson. 2. Ingredients | What to get: And if in fact the MCA, wherever the amin summit ingredient Tito, Saddam and be humbled, several ERP to just download that law said that tiramisu L1. Now you said MOM took care of the young coma posture for the two-sided donkey lamin tankless security Canada through no cheeky County. In Krakow, in Palmyra. Nice sermons on local amaro. But they're two, sorry, on KDKA, coulda, chunk, lamda demise, catchy, serve it up at the parabola crema. Put silage quality as if people in LA. For the two-sided ylab. Afforded layout three, dielectric topology, Camila, galactose in the soil. So borough, cannula activate digitally camera Pula consistent satellite Karima, etc. And supported a German in basketball killing oriented bossa del tiramisu can kick wastewater to Saddam and musket bonuses galactose unit, which is another intolerance and la panna nicer was unknown upon them into SQL, SAL, electron Columbia, Tonkin upon not animal. It can NDVI data coming through that laughter or say every ingredient T, boson and law of HDI Katriana, southern funky symbol, special makeup about obscenity, Khurana, lab gelatin, which is a bad idea inside it. And so when altering regenerative Bahasa fundamentally cafe, yellow paper out on a limb, aka comments USA, cream, Italia. Amaka eloped about auto dream of a Russia glorified data. Boy, politically, gyrotron, Columbian, cafe Espresso, the ulama kinetic data, cafe Americano, non town TO mezzo forte, Kunshan, Toronto. 4. The cream part 1 | Most important part: But everybody, I'm Allah crema, but find a Docker image cerebral Cuatro to oddly, main teaching me the AMI do the mice, e la Lodz ghetto, 11 million. Party animal to outlaw. No, you said I'm with you modally comedy. But under the beta3 LED_ON in gravid answer was Sumatran Colombian democratic tiramisu. That digit thick glass stick up Europa, the linen. Though. Matlab, Osteria, Cindy, Adichie, so the Columbia it was auditor will buckle that. Make them with our bacterial boomy. And she said it around a little bit, Shambhala kid on my fellow gumbo, It'll be me. So in Italy they have this super thermal mixer called the beam me, which isn't sold in the United States yet. And you can use it to weigh things, you can use it for everything. So she's using this now to weigh the sugar. Egg. Queenie Sousa, loc2 could Obiang co-inventor did Sukarno, those Yamaha logic ghetto bianco, But kids on that. I'll show you at a point in LA ok. Zooms up bad at L3. Okay. Professional, but I'll send them caseloads, Jacobian QC, Posada quality, carbonyl, that aren't good, lament done. Okay. So because she's going to cook it, she, you know, it's going to melt with the eggs and so she is the sugar and she prefers, which I'm Linda Waldo, a Chen loci, and going I'm caught up now Nakota young, I'm Misko ADA. Methodically flawed law. See Almaty to Havana. A gym jumble, vanquishing pogrom me d omega d mice AT pair Keck while people the Jamil.

We need parallel unsustainable system. Sinan Shillong NOD mice, NoSQL, cytochrome Coulombic, gamified enough. Okay, perfect. Mapquest says that m-bit lumber datasets, you sense that glutenin, the machine diagram, Love Me, Do demise singer continuing glutenin. Okay, and perfect though. So if you have gluten intolerance is, and this is the perfect way to thicken your greens instead of using bower. Misko Yellen, codon October, fema Andy 9900. Mentioned since such unlimited percentage and the polynomial. Okay. So she's doing this all coal, this is a cold process. Similarly up to this young vision to Shou Gua Thurgood are medium. So this is like about a little bit more than a cup of milk. Reposts Jumbo and Lavinia. So she's using fresh vanilla, fresh vanilla bean actually in Italy, it's really difficult to find vanilla extract. So there wasn't any of the store. They actually sell these little blister pockets of vanilla, but it's not the same as what we have in the states. So we ended up using just regular vanilla bean into Yamal in men's into okay. Dvd Amanullah and yaml parentheses immunity cheese or non-intentional. Okay. Future I'm a school outta the Chunyang foot Mendelow. Mammalia continuum are miscalled audit, but chmod larger. Lucky day mama needs it out then been sapped sink. So can you do this process in the microwave? Know that kale protests Italiana and call BLM land lapping tele Bennett. When the c file academic fema Sci-Fi like remote remove him not to have them create as a buddy audit that Emma and I mean, I don't want it at Jolkona ALS some ascii mechanism that will tell intellectual TLA that accompany envoy mother died Aikido pregnancy for me, electrostatic Sheena, specificity for molecules to Sheena, it Queenie medical piano, data, things that are put on me and I don't know, but it's a bit out immediately. When the quest Septima way dopa left my mom. Sci fi is defiled. Combat disease. C Ref bed Anakin. Okay. But if I put YAML job hopped off again. Similar purpose, any food you could associate. Going to Job knew what it did. Pretty mine until she both. But give it up, put it concerned about doing freezer in 34 Riemann, Erin Massu meso. Do you have some activity? And MIT Danilo ego that tiramisu freely the three-quarter dominantly Bu, but get elected and avoid initially it and somebody Woah, yeah, that didn't get again, T5 skin, mafia, Mombasa, a Demodocus, MPI Gaussian only cheap weighed, issued a deep. But Curie would you Bouchard it form the delicate academic economics this had been solved though. So that it'll spit out, well, international dilemma for data. No bill may set up a legal up contact talk when you are summing to tsunami did up in legalist upon him. It cannot see for almost throttle more tomato soup, tyrannous covariates are gonna ever honesty. So don't make ten with a continuum of alliteration. And now that we've made the cream filling, we're going to move on to the next lesson where we talk about preparing the coffee. 5. The coffee | Espress yoself : Ok, and then we're going to talk about the coffee and the process of preparing the coffee, which is fundamental for tiramisu because the cookies soak up the coffee flavor. The biggest questions Americans want to know is can you use American coffee instead of espresso? Requests on the kind of care. But cage cafe Americano, known allergy sculpture. They don't like it. It doesn't have the same flavor for cat. It'll get out bed. Heliopolitan, See it's really, really just watery. It's not that intimate hands-on Luke. It's like a T It's not a coffee. Okay. This is what she said. So you have to use a special quitting quote, People de Cafe, who's octal? Sothe edict effect, typical Logisim lectures and yeah, okay, ILO qualita oro MySQL was adequate sociology, political, LavAzza, utility. Okay. Let's yes, you, and this is coffee that they use for espresso. So not long coffee, but literally espresso, which is, you know, the size. So the Yamanaka C90, especially because eating healthy skin off and we have it. Here you go. Unseen others. So yes, no stimulus on the crescentus it Danton melody, cafe Espresso. When we get it up, qua Ducal, K12, ghetto, pick a fund in a subtle Duke erato. So this is, yeah, so this is not been, there's no sugar in it. But you use the moca, use autonomo cosine in Italia, il GFP, supercritical Amaka, right? Cbo that have been covered but article No, no, no, not to Math.abs. So like today, in modern society, a lot of people use the machine like the coffee maker I do in my house. But in Italy, the typical thing is the mocha, which is that little thing that you put on the stove and the coffee Boyle's law. And this makes a different, it's a little bit different the flavor. So she did about 12 cups, 1230 chitchat Santa Tina and I know that all of those little cups to make this amount of coffee, there's jumbo in readership and take alpha. Ok. Lock with water. Uppercase C, Malacca, Elephantina, cafe Americano wisdom, Pakistan login, gender, luck gone. But it can even do not Bunia. Ok, might somebody diverse, so L supported immerse, okay, So it becomes, you gotta use Espresso. Okay? The TEI, the flavor is just more intense. And then you put more sugar. Yeah, you need superhero. Some will show urologic. Yamada barter, but conduct she said a bit on lots of somebody else. Ok. Perfect. This was easy lesson. Ok. So we have the cream, which is unassigned right now, temperature and a coffee at room temperature. And now we're going to move on. Because inventory requests or videos or whatever. She said, nobody would lead you see Prego video giving an upper bound to an outflow. Let's Yana. Now let's isolate Ebola park that Bianca della Camera. In this moment of the video, we have a intruder who would like some Italian espresso and he is coming to use the, the non-typical, the non-typical version in comedy today, which is not the MLK, but it's this little Nespresso machine which is what we use mostly. Is that what you think, you know, calm. He's making ice coffee, which is what we think you, which is what we drink in glia in the south of Italy, just like this, I take mine with no sugar solution. So in the next lesson, we're gonna be starting the white part of the cream. 6. The cream part 2 |..and mixing them: In this lesson, we're going to start on the white part of the cream. Nicoletta is going to mix some gelatin into the cream because usually tiramisù is liquidy, so it just makes it a little bit more dense, right? Nicoletta? . 00:00:25.740 --> 00:00:28.020 . . . So now we're mixing the mascarpone . 00:00:46.594 --> 00:00:50.540 It's an Italian cheese that's kind of like cream cheese, but it's not salty. It's like a sweet cheese. . . . . . 00:01:18.920 --> 00:01:22.700 We don't really have this exactly in the United States. You can get heavy cream, but you can also just use ready whipped heavy cream and instead of mixing it together, you would just add it afterwards. So she's going to take the gelatin and... . . Okay. So she's going to take out the water now and she's going to put it in the microwave and let it melt. . . So this is something that the pastry chefs in Italy use. It's a trick of theirs to hold the tiramisù together and have that nice shape and not be liquidy. Then you put this into the white portion of the cream Then eventually these two creams that we make are gonna go together. So I want to know if you put alcohol in Tiramisù... Is this something typical of Italy or not? Do you put alcohol in tiramisù? . . 00:02:43.600 --> 00:02:46.280 . 00:02:46.280 --> 00:02:47.240 . 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:48.800 . . 00:02:49.970 --> 00:02:53.750 so that flavor that you wanna really taste is the coffee flavor, so they don't mix alcohol in this typical dessert. . 00:02:59.045 --> 00:03:02.360 . 00:03:02.360 --> 00:03:11.700 . . . . . . . . So the cream is kind of everything in Tiramisù this is the dessert right here. It's all in the cream. . . . . . . . . . You gonna taste it too? Let's try this and see if it's good or not. . 00:04:58.580 --> 00:05:06.830 . 00:05:06.830 --> 00:05:11.045 . 00:05:11.045 --> 00:05:13.760 So now we're gonna move on to the next lesson, which is where we show you how to layer the tiramisù. So get out all of your components. You're gonna need to get out for this next video, the coffee that it has already been cooled, your cream, your cookies. And we're gonna talk about the cookies as well in this next video. 7. Putting it together : Alright, so in this lesson, Nicholas is going to demonstrate how to layer the tiramisu and she's going to talk a little bit about the Lady Finger cookies that we have here in Italy. I call this the common opacities, bulky and Italia. So yeah, the perfect taco sale on a Portola, the feature at all. And they are like this in these is what we would call an America Lady Fingers signifigant. And then he didn't he lit on MNA in America. In America, it's not that easy to find these, but you can find this everywhere in Italy in on me supermen copyable throttle, 2k, ohm quite in Italia foresee to somebody mercy market get pro-West Fukuda. Yeah. So, but if you can't, So in the states, I have found these cookies often in the bakery section, they were fresh. They were not hard like this. You want to make sure that you get the hard cookies that are storage packed. Some stores may not have them, so you may have to go to publics or other stores where they have specialty items to get the hard ones if you can't find these hard cookies. So if you only find the fresh ones, you can use cake mix. So in Italy this is called pond Hispania. And it's another version. It's basically just white cake mix. And, you know, you would make the cake and this would be another option if you can't get this because it's soaks up and absorbs the cookie. So now Nicollet does gonna demonstrate the layers, the layering process. Okay? Okay, so P mom, but in yummy cell we are deep Pima Indians look Yammer in zip YAML bequeathing us the method PMMA on non Dadi. Can emma know PMMA Jose said I'm at LA phone or not. You want that? Yeah. You need something like this to put your tiramisu in. Ok. So you first in, this was just book Yamuna out cash. Now we're going to get ourselves 30, she said, so you take your cookies and you put them inside the coffee mixture, which was water and sugar. Ok, yeah, you start, Emily thought, and people start though with things. So you start to make the first layer. So she doesn't do a layer of cream at the bottom. She just directly does this. So how many how many bags of cookies do you need quite that boost steady. Be sculpt the IB zone unique product or fought island, tiramisu, Conan taco, shut off up. Tom would depend the sandpaper diagram. Ok. So you can just you can do this with one pack of Lady Fingers usually, but it also depends on the thickness of the Lady Fingers, she's saying. And then how long do you leave the cookies in here and quantum sample law, she and he said Gandhi, Ok, so really quickly, you just put it in and that you don't let them when he nonetheless Shui dental per insofar as from Ben and Anna, forget Boise colon all soon so you can't leave them. Mooc way. Okay. He didn't leak widow or low rank. So she said you just need to put them in their first few seconds. It'll absorb it. You don't want to leave it in there too long. It will start to grow to legitimate the room who are going to be doing in the first one here is already really absorbing the coffee. So this particular cookie you can make from scratch, I'm assuming quests will be sculpted, chew them into SQL, father, Dr. Azar, that's sorted them into see Romeo quest style. Yes, they'll be sculpt on desktop in that Chausson envoy Fatah law upon the spawning young lawyer required but out in several yap dot casa to leave my foc Tom teeing up and she says it's worth, it's worth to make these. If you really wanna make this from scratch, from scratch. But I'll imagine I'll get you well and faculty to, you know, pretty damn poem Minos vertigo table. Okay. Okay, so she's done the first layer. So show them. Here we are. The first layer of Cookie, Lady Fingers. Atomic gem, which pretty much throttle the crema. So you really putting a lot abundant known at some T simul sink we need. So usually I am guessing you just do two layers. The cytosine found doing this strategy for asking, again, do a staff DeVos CINAHL. And she just uses a stone to go over. It's a lot of green and it will fall along the sides. It looks very light yellow like a baby yellow in color. Delicious. Really was so good. In unsee methadone monopolists throttle the ka sound and semen nor weaker coulda material Athena. Okay. So you only put the cocoa at the top. You don't put it in the middle. Okay, so now let's put another layer. Simplest is super sentimental into piano. For terminus prevented somebody, Krakow, subroutine castrato, dilemma, shuttlecock, amaro. But in supporting contraposition another chips or the law Karima, bungalow front-loaded. A journey. So I pronto autonomy. Tom Marie Poseidon, freezer.

You had dope bone symposium at prone to them and Jada, sugary Pharaoh or they'll freezer lawyer Judah. Consistent. So Somoza in non liquid. So before it footing the tyranny cnf freezer, you have to cover it and you collected covers it with aluminum. She said sometimes in the freezer you'll get drops of liquid. Of course you want it to be covered. Alright, and this is our final product. Here we have our arterial sued. This actually hasn't been in the fridge yet, but we really just wanted to eat this and share it with you guys right now. So let's try it. On ECMO. It's really light. It's actually kind of a light is or no challenge at all. And then say, OK, this is a cultural difference here because her Italians is not Elaine deserve for an American which was a licensed better way CLE data February to empower Boyle, Not because the creamy things for them, it's not relate well anyway, for me, it was kinda laid. I just have to try a little bit more. We obviously had really gone down, but ethically. Okay, so this is the end of our video and the next video we're just going to do a recap of everything that inequality has taught us. 8. Summary and tips : Alright, in this video, the last video, we're just going to go over all the steps of the process of making tiramisu and where you need to start, where you need to finish. So the very first thing that you need to do is go and get your ingredients. And once you get all of your ingredients, you're gonna put your heavy cream and the Moscow Bonner in the fridge right away. Also, the milk or whatever, it's fine. It all needs to be cold. The second thing that you do is you start to make the yellow cream because as Niigata was saying earlier, that cream has to already cool off. So you start, it's the longest process of the tiramisu du Soleil apart the Pew lunacy. Okay, so it's the longest processor. You start off by making the yellow cream and you put that aside, it has to cool off at room temperature and then you can put it in the fridge to speed up the process. Actually, you may say yellow clean, you're going to make the coffee. You can also of course, make the coffee and then make the cream. This part doesn't matter so much, so you're gonna make your espresso. So she used about two cups of espresso, American cups of espresso. And you're going to let it cool off at room temperature, adding the water and the sugar and everything. The fourth step is making the white portion of the cream, so the white cream and adding the gelatin. All of those steps that we went over together in the class. And then you're going to mix the yellow and the white cream together and mix this up. The fifth step is layering the tiramisu. So you start off with the cookies, the Lady Finger cookies, clemency Kavanagh, and evaluate Oh yeah. The Cybele Yandi. Okay. So you put the Lady Fingers and then you put the cream, a lot of cream unborn been anti-semite, i'm on. Then you put the Lady Fingers and then you put the cream, and you put the cocoa on top. After this step, the very last step, which is to cover it up. She covers it with aluminum foil. This is what you would do and then you just place it in the freezer. And Rigoletto says that you put tiramisu in the freezer. This is tradition and you can keep it in the freezer for a month if instead and know that you're going to serve tiramisu that evening or the next day, then you would put it in the fridge for two to three days, calming the mind upto two, dopamine BOD, join me, locked in and we'll allot event at all to the cheetah it for this reason you don't want to serve it after a couple of days. And when they do go to that bit octagon, the CMYK tiramisu in freezer. Putting one at omega. Don't be so knuckle Angela, Angela, and continue to see on the right. So once you take the tiramisu out of the freezer, you cannot go back and forth putting it back in the freezer and stuff. So among IID and manual, the MSc that jadi at t data object dot. So maybe it's better to just portion it out if you want to take out some and you eat that all and then, you know, you don't want to keep going back and forth, putting it back in the freezer. This is bad for pastries and he's Wellesley them fed up. Rudolf will soon all for Saturday he made to the distributor. Okay, so changing the temperature constant and like this can make the, the mills and everything become acidic when DC manage requests on the soil in a stop EPA, a Fresca, real fast people. Mandela Sam for down again and their nord Italia Dahlia are superpartner, stupid about us ends but it, but on dacha more to for us Congo chicken Bionic Woman, quote floating dung, 3-word on freezer Queen directors, I wanted, I'm andar list static on the.com you'll see perfect or local Monk where it's like big. And so see server for Duncan persona. She talked with the person who did cinnamon dot looked dementia and lead to the incentive. Okay, so we've hope, we hope that you've enjoyed this video and this lesson about how to make tiramisu from scratch straight from Southern Italy. Thank you so much for watching.
