When I first started dealing with my phobia of "fear." It was difficult. I found myself rationalizing why I shouldn't do something, because I might mess up. It was hard going against it, but I'm glad I did. There are so many things to try and obstacles to overcome.
Tiramisu, Version 1.0
Tiramisu used to be part of the problem. I was scared of wasting ingredients. I finally decided to tackle the fearsome cake that needed expensive mascarpone cheese. Everything was going well until I encountered the filling. Oh my...I royally messed up the cheese. It became grainy.
Lesson of the day: Don't beat mascarpone, it will destroy the creamy texture.Other than that, the tiramisu's flavor profile was superb. Next time, I will dominate the CHEESE FILLING!!!
