Espresso affogato

October 29, 2014

This espresso dessert is a fun wonderful treat after a meal.  Hey, you put cream and sugar in your coffee anyway, right?


      4 scoops vanilla ice cream
        8 shots hot espresso


      Place 1 small scoop of vanilla ice cream in 4 small glasses.  Serve 2 hot espresso shots in a small cup alongside each glass.  Have guests pour the espresso over the ice cream.


      When Domaine asked me to guest-contribute, I immediately knew what I wanted to share – I presented this menu at the Scoula at Eataly, Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali’s world-renowned Manhattan food emporium, with delectable results and not a nibble or crumb spared. Best part? This menu is fool-proof.

      The entire Eataly menu:
      Peppercorn crusted Beef Tenderloin
      Pancetta Gougeres
      Winter Lettuces with Pomegranate Seeds
      Espresso Affogato
      Gorgonzola Potatoes au Gratin
