summer idea 03 :: affogato

As I said, these summer ideas are not, I repeat not, recipes. E’s youngest nephew could probably make this. But it’s something that you may not know of, or not thought of for a while, so why not plant the seed?

Affogato is an Italian drink/dessert that involves vanilla ice cream and espresso. Already sounds good, right?

I just love this. 3 steps:

1) Brew a nice espresso.

2) Scoop some vanilla ice cream into a glass or bowl.

3) Pour espresso over ice cream.

Eat straight away – the ice cream will immediately start melting, but in a really, really good way. Trust me on this.

If you’re feeling indulgent (me, always), crumble a chocolate cookie on top. We got given some quadruple chocolate cookies recently and they took over my life for a while.

As has this.

    Daaaaamn! I'm not even a coffee fan and that looks delicious to me. I'm a fan of the extra cookie. Love your leaf-shaped bowl too, so pretty! xx
