Our sweet adventure began 20 years ago when Founder John Alair Garcia tasted a heavenly dessert in a hilltop village in Italy. That Tiramisu, meaning “pick-me-up”, was to change John’s destiny forever. Obsessed with the rich, creamy yet light texture and glorious flavors, John returned to the U.S. determined to recreate the irresistible delicacy.
John took his vision of popularizing authentic Italian desserts to master dessert & food innovator, Paula Perlis. The pair set to work, refining their dish until it was perfect. And perfection meant using authentic ingredients imported from Italy – from lush mascarpone to artisan, Savoiardi ladyfingers.
Valuing the Italian handcrafting spirit, their bakery production team hand dipped the ladyfingers in a custom espresso mixture, layered the smooth mascarpone and finished the dish with a generous dusting of premium cocoa powder. With orders coming in from restaurants across the country, Taste It Presents was born and Tiramisu swiftly became a national favorite.
Our Tiramisu is still made the same way today.
This approach to dessert creation has remained the bedrock of Taste It Presents. Our culinary team travels globally to discover new flavors and outstanding ingredients. For our authentic Tres Leches and Dulce de Leches cakes, we explored Latin American countries, our velvety Chocolate Mousse Cake took us to Belgium and our luscious Crème Brûlèe to France. Each dessert is still taken through hundreds of iterations to refine small details, such as perfecting the Sicilian lemons in our Limoncello Mascarpone Cake to pairing our New Orleans style Bread Pudding with a crème Anglaise sauce.
For our energetic team of bakers, crafters, tasters, producers and packers, dessert making is more than a job. It is an obsession.
