Sophia Loren was Bill Bogg’s guest on the April 20 “Bill Bogg’s Corner Table” show on the Food TV Network. A few minutes were spent talking about her new book, Sophia Loren’s Recipes (Memories GT Publishing) and how tiramisu is the perfect “date food”. Her recipe serves 8.
  • EGGS, 3 separated
  • SUGAR, 5 tablespoons
  • LADYFINGERS, 1 large package (approximately 36)
  • BITTER CHOCOLATE, 2 ounces, grated
  • UNSWEETENED COCOA POWDER, 1/2 cup, or 2 ounces grated bittersweet chocolate
  1. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a medium-sized bowl and beat well.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks.
  3. In a third, larger bowl, combine the egg yolk mixture with the mascarpone, then fold in the egg whites to produce a creamy mixture.
  4. Arrange a tight layer of ladyfingers in a 9-by-12-inch serving dish.
  5. Using a spoon, drizzle about half the liqueur and half the espresso over the ladyfingers.
  6. Cover the ladyfingers with the mascarpone mixture and the grated chocolate, and dust it with a little more than half the cocoa.
  7. Cover the filling with a second layer of ladyfingers and drizzle with the remaining liqueur and espresso.
  8. Place the dish in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours (the Tiramisu can be made 24 hours in advance).
  9. Top with the remaining cocoa before serving.
