If you’re a coffee lover, you’ve no doubt enjoyed an affogato. A traditional Italian dessert that is as simple as it is delicious. A hot shot of espresso poured over a decadent scoop of gelato. Bellissimo.
Our boozy twist on the affogato is the perfect dinner party hack.
To serve after dinner:
Biscotti, amaretti, honeycomb, candied nuts, cacao nibs, chocolate shavings
Mr Black was recently featured in the ultimate affogato offered at Firedoor in Sydney. Served alongside Gelato Messina and a housemade smoked butter biscotti. Pure heaven.
If you haven’t heard of Firedoor, we highly recommend the Chef’s Table episode featuring chef Lennox Hill. Netflix + affogato anyone?
