Julio "Bo" Serra is looking for a Tiramisu-making wife! Julio is 6-2, brown hair and blue eyes. On Sept. 20, 1997, he will become 23 years old. He's now an assistant manager at Pizza Hut, and aspires to open his own restaurant. Tiramisu is his favorite dessert, and thus, his intended absolutely MUST be able to make the heavenly dessert. If you are interested in meeting Julio, email your favorite Tiramisu recipe and your photo to Julio (make sure you put his name in the "Subject" space). He is friendly, and will answer all the letters he receives. If you want to see more pictures of Julio (doesn't he look like the actor Hugh Grant?) then visit his mom's website.
Enjoying "Orgasmic" Capuccino Tiramisu (Fiona Barnett, left, and friend Vanessa Griffiths)
While my best friend and I were in Whistler, B.C., Canada for the week recently (we go up there every weekend, but since it was Christmas holidays we were up there over the Blizzard of '96) we were walking through the village, and we started talking to a group of guys, who were all more than slightly . . . uh . . . intoxicated.
One thing led to another, and they asked where we were headed. Vanessa and I were dying for some pie, as we had just come from the early showing of "Michael," which features a whole song about pie. Then Vanessa said she felt like Tiramisu, and one of the guys asked what it was. She laughed, giggled, and said, "It's better than sex!" We instantly had 15 guys traipsing through Whistler Village on the search for Tiramisu. Luckily we went to this new-yuppie styled Italian restauant, called "Pazo's," I think, and we all ordered Tiramisu.
The waitress kind of looked at us funny, and one of the guys just ordered "the sex on the menu." She was NOT amused. Anyway, after a lengthy wait, the Tiramisu came, and we all proceeded to moan, groan . . .and basically it was a group orgy-style Meg Ryan fake-orgasm impression, all in the middle of a restaurant filled with chic European ski bunnies and young banker-types. We were the show for the night.
When the bill came, we wrote "Thanks for the hot sex, better than anything we've ever tasted" right on the credit-card imprint. But, we gave her a good tip and we were on our way. I never heard from those guys again, but man, we sure did introduce them to Tiramisu in a way we will never forget.
