Cappuccino (Italian)

This is the main reason I got myself a milk foamer. :)
The Cappuccino is a coffee and milk drink with a very rich history and known variations; which I'll not reproduce here (follow the link if you're thirsty for details). Pretty easy to make if you have a milk foamer, this drink is the ideal canvas for personalizing with your favorite spices, syrups, decorations, details etc. :) And it's a lovely way to start the day. 

Last year: nothing
Two years ago: nothing
Three years ago: nothing
Four years ago: Baked aubergines with mozzarella and garlic-pomegranate-mint sauce.
Five years ago: Pasta Arabbiata (Angry penne) (Italian)(vegan).
Six years ago: Grilled turkey breast with avocado-feta salsa.
Seven years ago: Quesadillas with cheddar, bacon and cherry tomatoes (Mexican).
Eight years ago: Cheese-stuffed mushrooms and cheese fussili with herbs and aioli; and Swedish-style salmon with vegetables and white sauce.

Ingredients (for each cup):
  • 230 ml milk, divided into 200 ml + 30 ml
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons freshly ground coffee
  • 50 ml water
  • a bit of cinnamon (or shaved chocolate) to dust the top (optional)

Heat the milk (not all the way to boiling point, only 'till it steams a bit). Prepare a strong espresso from the water, sugar and coffee. Pour the espresso shot on the bottom of the cup and add 200 ml heated milk.
Foam the remaining 30 ml milk in a separate cup. Pour the milk foam on top of the drink.
Dust with cinnamon. It's done, dig in! :)
