‘Father Of Tiramisu’ Ado Campeol Dies Aged 93

New Delhi: Ado Campeol, the Italian restaurateur dubbed the ‘father of tiramisu’, has died aged 93.

Although disputed, Campeol and his wife, Alba, are considered the inventors of the famous dessert.

Campeol was the owner of Le Beccherie, a restaurant in Treviso in northern Italy where the famous dessert was invented by him and his wife. Le Beccherie was opened by the Campeol family in 1939.

The dish, a staple of Italian cuisine, was never patented by the family, but appeared on the restaurant menu in 1972.

Chef Roberto Linguanotto, the dessert’s co-inventor, perfected the dish with Campeol and called it ‘tiramisu’ which translates to ‘pick me up’ in English. According to Linguanotto, the dish was the result of an accident while making vanilla ice-cream.
