Italians don't eat much for breakfast. After you've seen what kind of a dinners we've eaten, you won't be surprised that our breakfast habits are lightening up. Usually its caffe and a small sweet, like cake or a croissant.
First, some caffe latte.
Italian style caffe is much more like espresso than American coffee. I love this stove top espresso maker and plan to bring one home for us.
I've been picking up fresh milk from a latteria every week. Whisk the milk on low heat until scalding.
The coffee is ready after a minute of percolating.
Pour coffee, sugar, and then milk and stir.
Our host family's mother made us this dolce (sweet, or cake) for breakfast the other day.
breakfast is best enjoyed on the patio with a good book!
