Espresso coffee - Gabriella Baiguera
Coffee is a pleasant drug which we find difficult to give up. The author, a teacher at the CastAlimenti school in Brescia, who has already collaborated with Slow Food, initiates us into the small secrets of the ideal espresso, cappuccino or Turinese bicerìn of yesteryear, and then proposes cocktails, milkshakes or soft drinks derived directly from espresso coffee.
The book also presents the history of coffee, its various qualities and the techniques used to make a perfect espresso. It ends with a selection of recipes by Rosalba Gioffré.
