Parisians in the wind, curious travellers or food addicts, you couldn’t escape the “Big Mamma” madness. More than 1200 employees, 8 restaurants spread throughout the capital including the gigantic food market, La Felicità installed Station F, 2 restaurants in Lyon and Lille (in France) and 2 other ones in London…for seven years now, Tigrane Seydoux and Victor Lugger have imposed their brand as THE trendy reference par excellence, “The Place to Be” in Paris.

But here’s, 4 months ago, the isolation came through and all the employees found themselves on layoff. So, the famous brand whom nothing can stop, came up with the idea to go into the takeaway business!

And… On their Instagram account, “Big Mamma” group delivered some of their best dessert recipes, which are absolutely outstanding!!!

Obviously, as a greedy food eater, I’ve chosen the tiramisu! I’ve tried it and I have to say that I’m not disappointed by the Tiramisu from Big Mama’s mother (yes it’s true, she shared herself the recipe) and it is a hit! For you, I’ve transcribed it here… Get to your spatula! Enjoy Ragazzi and thanks to Big Mamma for sharing 😉
