The Funny Things You Miss and Strawberry Tiramisu

In case you haven’t noticed, my photos don’t seem to have said goodbye to my old kitchen yet. I’m sure a therapist could have a field day with that (and probably with me in general if I’m honest) but I insist it’s only because I still have pictures of stuff I cooked there to post.

Nothing to do with missing my extensive collection of Austrian baking tins. With lids that make them carry-able. And the enormous fridge/freezer with the American style ice-dispenser. Or the frustrations inherent in trying to cook in other people’s kitchens. Or the friend whose recipe this is who fastened a pearl bracelet around my wrist before I left. Or indeed, making a large bowl of kisir and eating that, and cheese and crackers and omelettes with toast pretty well constantly for the last week at the place I’m housesitting.

I mean, look how cute! That little white chair, that speckly oven dish! That duck-egg-blue formica table, covered in scratches and purchased for the princely sum of fifteen euros!

Them’s things worth missing.

Missing anything lately?

Steffi’s Strawberry Tiramisu

I made this tiramisu with Italian strawberries which obviously start early so if you live in Northern climes, you might still be able to get local ones. I don’t see why you couldn’t replace the strawberries with fresh or drained frozen other kinds of berries, let me know if you try it. It doesn’t matter if not all the strawberries are beautiful – you can pick out the nice ones for the top, for the rest will be pureed anyhow.

150 ml (2/3 cup) or so port

400 grams (15 ounces) strawberries

1 leaf gelatine

2 tablespoons boiling water

4 eggs

150 grams (6 ounces) sugar

500 grams (18 ounces) mascarpone

50 ml (1/5 cup) amaretto (I used brandy)

40 ladyfingers

Put the port into a dish and prepare a 30 cm x 20 cm (8 x 12 inch) oven dish to assemble in, or you can use glasses for individual portions too.

Puree 2/3 of the strawberries so there are still a few lumps, you don’t want it too thin.

Lay the leaf of gelatine flat in dish of cold water for a couple of minutes until it softens, then squeeze out and dissolve in the boiling water.

Stir the gelatine through the strawberries and set aside.

Separate the eggs, putting the whites into a scrupulously clean, medium-sized glass or non-reactive metal bowl (any fat from the yolks or bowl will stop them holding as much air as you want) and the yolks into another medium bowl.

Beat the egg whites with a hand-mixer until they form stiff peaks, first on high, then on medium so you don’t over-whisk and cause them to collapse. Do this part first and you won’t need to wash the whisk attachments.

Beat the sugar and yolks together for 3 or 4 minutes until creamy. Beat in the mascarpone, and amaretto.

Stir 1/3 of the whites into the mascarpone mixture to loosen, then gently fold in the rest.

Dip the ladyfingers into the port and layer to cover the bottom of the oven dish, you may need to break some so they fit.

Cover with 1/2 the mascarpone mixture,, then half the strawberry gelatine. Repeat.

Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.

Just before serving, slice and use the last 1/3 of the strawberries to decorate the top.

oh how i love me some tiramisu . . . and this seasonal one looks fab! missing . . . hmmm . . . well if i’m missing it, i’ve forgotten already ;-)

Stefanie July 8, 2011 at 7:23 am

Not that I do not like the name but to be fair I have to admit that the recipe should be called “Stefanie who got the recipe from Jakob’s ex-step-father-strawberry-tiramisu.” Looks great, might prepare one on the weekend.

Material things I miss very little, I forget about them quickly, and when the memory comes back is usually pleasant: “ah it was so nice to have that wood stove” type of thing. Places I miss more but they give me a similar feeling. The problem is people and animals, when they are really gone.

Cool strawberry arrangement on the tiramisu, very elegant :-)

Marietta July 8, 2011 at 7:12 pm

Flo’s comment just cracked my heart i swear it did and i can’t stop crying.
You guys brought luck to my life! despite the situation here in Greece, actually after your visit things are so much better for me…

why dont you come again so that they will get even better?! (I tried a lame joke because I’m at work and can’t excuse the damn tears).

Time for a Little Something July 8, 2011 at 10:57 pm

This looks so beautiful! Can’t wait to try this in December when strawberries come in here in NZ. It sounds amazing.

katie@cozydelicious July 9, 2011 at 12:33 am

Ooh your tiramisu looks wonderful. I wonder if sambuca would work in place of amaretto? It might be nice with berries, and I happen to have a bottle! I do understand the kitchen attachment. We just moved and I have yet to really get down and dirty with my new kitchen!

Sasa July 15, 2011 at 9:42 pm

I think just about anything could be subbed for the booze…

AML July 9, 2011 at 1:07 am

Double cheeseburgers with bacon, a side of salty, crispy french fries, and a vanilla milkshake. That’s about all I miss. Can’t find them thangs here in Piemonte, or Italy for that matter. I guess I kinda miss the mutt too. Besides that – I tend to rewire my brain to not miss things. It’s sad, but it prevents emotional pain later. Hope you are adjusting as best you can…

Kimberley July 9, 2011 at 6:32 am

I hope those lovely things (the baking dish, at least – it’s perfect) find their way back to you at some point. And kudos for planning ahead with posts. It’s amazing how challenging it can be to feel at home without a kitchen.

milliemirepoix July 9, 2011 at 10:17 am

I feel your frustration at cooking in other people’s kitchens, I always feel so fumbly and awkward. I get real attached to random things, too, like dining tables (I know when I eventually leave Wellington I’m going to miss the one I’m sitting at right now. Hard.)…

Gorgeous strawberries by the way, I’m aching for summer!

Alli July 9, 2011 at 5:45 pm

It’s hard moving even when it is back home, there are so many things you miss but think of all the new things you are going to experience. Keep smiling

hungryandfrozen July 10, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Ohhhh how beautiful.
I think I’d definitely miss that table, too, if it were mine and I had to leave it.

Mairi @ Toast July 10, 2011 at 5:49 pm

Oh that sounds bellissimo! Roll on Summer!

Emma Galloway July 10, 2011 at 11:27 pm

I miss home. I miss my family more than I can say. And I find myself constantly kicking myself for not bringing certain plates/bowls/spoons over with me too. But ah well.
You and me both, we will find our feet. Promise.

Sasa July 15, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Yup ^_^

Anna Johnston July 11, 2011 at 9:51 pm

YUMMO! Looks delish! Tira is one of my all time faves. I’ve got all the ingredients in the fridge ready to rock and roll and you lovely have inspired me to get off my behind and make it. Perhaps for dessert tonight. Mmmmmmm. Thanks for the flash of Summer in your post, its uber-cold here at the moment, I can barely think straight. I miss Summer, dreadfully!

Stephanie July 12, 2011 at 10:39 am

I miss knowing what’s coming next. Somehow, I find that the older I get, the less confident I feel that I actually know the right direction for myself. Is that wisdom? I sure thought wisdom would be a lot more of a cozy, satisfied feeling . . .

I think it’s one of those days where I miss everything — and I didn’t even move halfway across the world! I hope to distract myself by baking a hazelnut-sour cherry cake tonight. If that doesn’t work, I shall resort to chocolate.

Suzy July 12, 2011 at 9:34 pm

I don’t know where to start.
Formica table for 15 Euro? Love it!
Perfectly sliced and aligned strawberries.
I am waiting for the picture where you dug in…

thatssoron July 13, 2011 at 8:49 pm

sasa! that looks great hey!

Su-Lin July 13, 2011 at 10:26 pm

That is just beautiful.

Aiman July 14, 2011 at 12:46 am

Its so sad that i can’t find any more strawberries in my part of world. I am sure you had plenty of ooooh and aaaaaaaah while eating this. So, jealous right now.

Su-yin July 14, 2011 at 11:20 am

Strawberry tiramisu? Yes, please. This is gorgeous, I especially like how you’ve arranged the strawberry slices so beautifully – it truly appeals to my inner OCD! :)

p.s. I miss home!

Carola July 16, 2011 at 3:26 am

Beautiful photos! Strawberry tiramisu is one of my favourite sweet dishes! I also tried it with wholemeal ladyfingers, or with raspberries instead of strawberries. Somehow, any variation of tiramisu turns out to be delicious. It makes me wanna fill a swimming-pool with it, scream “oishiiiiiii” while jumping in and eat my way through to the other side ^_^;

Maria @ Scandifoodie July 16, 2011 at 6:21 am

Hey dear, long time! Hope you’re settling well and hope to see you in Sydney some time! This strawberry tiramisu sounds like the perfect thing to have in any occasion! x

shaz July 16, 2011 at 6:31 pm

I miss summer! Love that first photo, if I had a chair like that, I’d probably be missing it too. May your memories sustain you as you settle into your new pattern in life, Sasa.

Dan July 18, 2011 at 9:33 am

The tiramisu looks amazing, all your strawberry slices are perfectly uniform with one another, nice work.

Couscous & Consciousness July 21, 2011 at 12:02 am

This tiramisu looks divine. I’ve been pretty lucky to be staying in Alli’s cooking school, so not a lot that I’m missing about my old kitchen – but I do miss my own bed. Will be pleased when we are in our own home, can get all our stuff out of storage, and sleep in our own bed :-)

The first photo is just gorgeous. The strawberries look perfect!
