This recipe came from the rec.food.recipes newsgroup, and was posted by Chris Garrity. He says: “It comes from the side of an Italian (I think) brand of ladyfingers. I don’t remember the brand, but the recipe is Matilde’s Tiramisu. Marinos, an Italian restaurant in Cambridge (Mass.), serves their tiramisu with a chocolate sauce on the side. This is an approximation I made up.”
