Affogato

all details

There's a theory that if coffee was discovered today it would be deemed an illegal substance due to its stimulating properties. True or not, I am thankful coffee has been consumed since about the 10th century and there seems little threat of it being outlawed. Jane Strode

    Why do you think readers want a political comment about coffee's legality in a food article? Is this meant to have a go at the long overdue common sense laws which prohibit smoking tobacco in eateries? Is it having a go at health inspections of all food outlets?

    If it is just entirely the journo's attempt to be amusing, it is an extremely lame and stale attempt. Please stick to comments about food and drinks.

      An excellent pick-me-up on a hot day, this is a hardy perennial for the summer months.

      And please, please, PLEASE, lighten up, for pity's sake.

    Affogato is our favourite not-quite-dessert/not-just-coffee when we're out. .Twice we've been served it with a couple of little biscotti on the side for dunking - I don't know why everbody doesn't do it. Perfection. A little textural yumminess to enhance the experience.
