It all started back in 2018 when Ugo, now 29, escaped the theatre world and using his late father's recipe, began hand-making outstanding tiramisu in environmentally friendly glass jars from exceptional Cornish Italian ingredients.
An award-winning product, TiramisUGO scooped up a Gold Taste of the West in last year’s 2020 awards, as well as a One Star Great Taste award.
The business was growing steadling, selling directly to farm shops, delis, cafes, theatres and garden centres as well as at local farmers markets.
Then, Covid-19 hit and all the events of the year were cancelled, whilst lockdown restrictions forced our usual outlets to close.
That’s when family values saved us once again as Ugo decided to offer customers the opportunity to order genuine, Italian ready meals, delivered directly to their door at no extra cost.
He called on his heritage and his love for cooking to develop The Cornish Italian.
High-end Italian meals boxes to go which include breadsticks, delicious homemade pasta dishes and of course, our iconic tiramisu to finish it off.
