Strawberry Tiramisu a Sweet, Delicious Dessert

Strawberry season comes early in Nice. By mid-April, the first fragrant strawberries from the local hills grace the market in my neighbourhood. And as if fresh berries aren’t enough of a treat, this delightfully fluffy strawberry tiramisu never fails to impress. Vive la fraise!

This recipe is found in the cookbook Provence Food and Wine: The Art of Living, filled with simple to make Provencal recipes and tempting photography by François Millo.

Strawberry Tiramisu

Tiramisu is not quite pudding, not really a flan, definitely not a cake, but absolutely delicious. However, the best thing about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare, and it can be made in advance.
