Ch’tiramisu is Northern France’s answer to Italy’s Tiramisu. What a strange name, I thought. Where is it from? A quick search on the net yielded very few English results and the rest were all in French. There is a famous French movie, called Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis, which means “welcome to the sticks”. “Ch’ti” means out in the country and is associated with the cold and rainy Nord-Pas-de-Calais region in Northern France where they also speak Ch’ti dialect.
