Among the traditional recipes, the most popular are very similar: the recipe of Le Beccherie restaurant in Treviso (Veneto region) and the one of Albergo Roma in Tolmezzo (Friuli Venezia Giulia region).
The ingredients are identical, and were the inspiration for the two categories.
It originates from the tradition and includes 6 indispensable basic ingredients: savoiardi biscuits, mascarpone cheese, eggs, coffee, cocoa powder, sugar.
Variations are not permitted.
It represents innovation, and unleashes your fantasy.
It includes 4 indispensable basic ingredients: mascarpone cheese, eggs, coffee, cocoa powder.
It allows the replacement of savoiardi with other biscuits or sponge cake, and the addition of 3 ingredients at most, at the discretion of the competitor.
To join the Tiramisù World Cup you need to meet these two fundamental requirements
1. You have to be 18 years old, or older
2. You must not be a food-service professional
“Food-service professional” means anybody who has worked, in the past 2 years and for at least 6 months even if non-consecutive, in a professional kitchen or in a bakery and pastry kitchen, in any capacity. Assistants (waiters, shop assistants, bartenders) are not to be considered as professionals.
Savoiardi Vicenzovo by Matilde Vicenzi, lyophilized Hausbrandt coffee, Lattebusche mascarpone, Le Naturelle pasteurized eggs (yolk and albums), Emilia Zaini cocoa powder and sugar are the basic ingredients.
• We will give them to you at the beginning of the competition: you won’t have to worry about anything
• Their amount is secret: you will find it out the day of the competition
• They can’t be replaced with other ingredients/products of a different brand or origin
Neither of the traditional recipes that inspired the competition’s rules contain alcohol: that’s why, if you want to win the Tiramisù World Cup, you mustn’t use it!
Biscuits or sponge cake that you will use to replace savoiardi are additional ingredients, along with the 3 ingredients that you will be allowed to use to prepare your Tiramisu with the Creative Recipe.
• They have to be brought by the competitor
• They have to be edible and not expired
• If they are packaged, the competitor will be allowed to bring them autonomously to their position
• If they are fresh, the competitor will have to buy them on the same day of the competition, and bring them to the reception desk of the location in which he/she will compete within 30 minutes from the issue of the receipt. All the fresh ingredient must be delivered to the receptionist all together in a cooler bag. The receptionists will check the receipt and label the ingredients with the competitor’s number before leaving them in the fridge. They will be brought to the competitors at their workspaces at the beginning of the competition, along with the basic ingredients.
Remember that, best case scenario, you will compete 3 times: at the selections, at the semi-finals and at the final.
