Recipe by Chef John
"In addition to being an incredible-tasting dessert, tiramisu also offers the perfect segue when you're trying to steer the Valentine's dinner conversation towards spicier subjects. This heady, mood-elevating concoction is rich and deeply satisfying, yet remarkably light in texture. Yes, you can use regular cream cheese, but mascarpone is far superior."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe was very good, but the mascarpone mixture was bumpy, and had a gritty texture. I followed the instructions to the tee, but I don't know what I did wrong! Please tell me if you know, Thank you!
Thank you, Chef John, from one Chef to another, for posting a PROPER Tiramisu recipe! I'm rather sick of all the "modern" frou-frou imposters with various liqueurs and such masquerading as the real thing! ;-)
This turned out very good! I ended up making my own "espresso" with instant coffee and it still worked. Make sure not to dip the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture for more than a few seconds, as shown in the video. I will definitely make this again.
