Italian

There are no words to describe tiramisu when it's been made with the correct ingredients. In fact, the literal meaning of Tiramisu, which is "pick-me-up", is bit of an understatement. Tiramisu is a desert worthy of a special occasion: neither making nor eating it may be rushed.

This simple, almost delicate dish is our family's variation of a recipe given to Marietjie by her cousin Heidi, who was given it by a colleague with an Italian husband. We buy dry chickpeas at Mefco and cook it overnight in a slow cooker until it is soft and tender. Alternatively, use canned chickpeas.
