I’ve been known to get a little crazy, and this month will be no exception. The proof is this: I’m sharing my recipe for “Death by Tiramisu” with anyone who purchases a playscript in March…for free! Serve up some tiramisu after a Fun Middle School Play, and don’t be surprised if members of your audience actually swoon. It’s a dessert to die for!
Tiramisu sound too fancy? Think again. The name simply means “little pick-me-up” in Italian, and the traditional version is made with layers of coffee-dipped cookies, rich cream, and shaved chocolate. Easy. Gorgeous. Deadly good.
It’s going to be a delicious dessert following any play performance, but it’s a match made in heaven with my mystery dinner show, The Secret of the Spoon. Tiramisu has a starring role in this particular script! The play tells the story of the Pastalucci Family who run an Italian restaurant and are mourning the loss of their beloved Nonni…not to mention the special spoon she used to make her famous tiramisu. It’s a comedy, it’s a mystery, and it’s a dinner show all layered into one play. And like tiramisu, it’s a crowd pleaser!
A Mystery Dinner Show with a Dessert to Die For! It’s madness, I tell you!
And have I mentioned how dead easy tiramisu is to make? Four layers and you’re done! Don’t anticipate having to make it the day of the show, either. Tiramisu gets better when its had a chance to sit and put its feet up. Prepare it the day before your show, go about your business, and it will be ready and waiting for its entrance the following evening.
In my recipe for “Death by Tiramisu,” I not only give you the instructions on how to prepare the original version but also advice on easy substitutions, possible variations, and some tips on making it for a large group.
So purchase a script from Fun Middle School Plays in the month of March, and enjoy my recipe for “Death by Tiramisu.” It would be madness not to!
