Tiramatzu: A Delicious New Way to Eat Matzah on Passover

Matzah, these days, isn’t just for brei. It’s for fancy layered cakes, grown-up toffee, and quiche. Pastry chef Allison Robicelli’s buzzed-about Tiramatzu is a case in point. Who needs ladyfingers when you’ve got Stumptown espresso-soaked matzah, layered with mascarpone mousse and a seductive espresso ganache?

Allison Robicelli, co-owner of Robicelli’s Bakery in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, debuted this decadent Passover dessert in 2015, at a time when the matzah landscape was becoming more and more varied and irresistible. The Tiramatzu unquestionably took the cake in Vogue‘s matzah dessert lineup last year.

These gorgeous ripples of espresso-soaked matzah and indulgent mascarpone are the perfect fusion of Brooklyn’s Italian and Jewish food legacies.  It can be yours if you order online (they’ll ship nationwide!), or visit their wholesale bakery in Bay Ridge.

We expect this Passover will continue to mean tasty developments in all things unleavened. Stay tuned for our upcoming matzah creations and Passover treats!
