Would you like some coffee, an espresso a cappuccino? The question is always asked at the end of the meal. More often than not the coffee service acts as a disruption to the flow of the meal. So, we decided to see if we could just integrate the inevitable. I am fond of biscotti and espresso. The two balance each other, the crisp cookie absorbing the intense coffee extraction. And then with the introduction of espresso comes the idea of Sambuca. NO, not always, but many times it is in the back of the mind. So, we brought the tastes, textures and ideas of the end of the meal coffee and put it into a dish. Here we have espresso ice cream with powdered salted almond butter and licorice puree and crisp.
