RORY: Okay, have I mentioned how much I’m loving the three month anniversary thing?
DEAN: Yeah, you did.
RORY: Because this tiramisu is so good that if the anniversary were completely sucking right now, this would save it.
Tiramisu is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian dessert, made of ladyfingers soaked in coffee, layered with a sweet mascarpone cheese mixture flavoured with cocoa. It’s generally thought to date to the 1960s, and may originate from a restaurant in the city of Treviso, but the word tiramisu isn’t found until the 1980s. The name means something like “pick me up, cheer me up” in Italian.
It’s not surprising that the coffee-loving Rory would enjoy tiramisu.
