“I spent weeks perfecting a classic Tiramisu recently...cooking the zabaglione over a hot stove & beating my brains out. Then our hero Sam, The Cooking Guy, arrives to end my pain with a recipe you won't find in Bon Appetit. I guarantee a smile attack on just about anybody at your table with a pulse. I give up! Thanks, Sam.”
