Quote: “So you want me to eat cake and drink coffee…at the same time? Well, if you insist.”
If, like me, you love coffee and cake but you grab whatever muffin is available when ordering, maybe you should take a little look at this: http://allrecipes.com/howto/coffee-pairing/detail.aspx It offers a quick insight into coffee by region and which sweet treats to pair it with. It also has links to the recipes too; so you can ditch the coffee shop cakes and make your own healthier or unhealthier versions.
When thinking about it, I guess it makes complete sense; If you love both or even one more than the other then you might as well get the best out of your daily, or for those more virtuous, weekly, luxury.
Now which way round do we do it? Coffee first then match the cake, or cake first then match the coffee. It’s too early, I need a caffeine hit to decide.
