被意大利媒體譽為 「提拉米蘇之父」 的餐館老闆阿多 坎皮奧( Ado Campeol )逝世,享年 93 歲。他生前是位於意大利北部特雷維索的  Le Beccherie 餐館的老闆,著名甜點提拉米蘇就是在他的餐館裡發明的。

Tiramisu features coffee-soaked biscuits and mascarpone. Ado Campeol was there when it was invented by his wife and a chef. It was the result of a happy accident while they were making vanilla ice cream.

提拉米蘇以咖啡浸泡過的餅乾和馬斯卡彭奶酪著稱。當阿多‧坎皮奧的妻子和一位廚師發明了這個甜點時,他就在場。這是他們做香草冰淇淋時的意外收穫。

The proof of the pudding, of course, is in the eating and by that measure, tiramisu, which means ‘pick me up’ has since become a massive success, both in Italian cuisine and in adapted versions around the world.

當然,甜點好不好,吃了才知道。看來確實好吃,因為意為 「帶我走」 的甜點 「提拉米蘇(tiramisu)」 自那以後轟動了意大利烹飪界,乃至在世界各地都衍生出了不同的改良版本,同樣大受歡迎。

Ado Campeol added the dish to his restaurant menu in 1972, but the family never patented the recipe.

1972 年,阿多‧坎皮奧將這道美食添加到他的餐館菜單,但一家人從未為菜譜申請過專利。
