Introduction of Cafe au Lait


INTRODUCING CAFÉ AU LAIT
In France, equal parts of steamed milk and strong hot coffee are combined to make the perfect mellow beverage known as a café au lait.
Prepare this easy recipe at home and serve it at a traditional French breakfast with flaky croissants or as an after-brunch coffee with a single square of dark chocolate. Your guests will think they’ve been transported to a sidewalk café in Paris.
This recipe makes one serving but the proportions can be increased for multiple cups of this gentle pick-me-up.
In Spain, this identical drink is known as cafe con leche, while Germans call it milchkaffee. Vegans need not feel left out of this cafe au lait recipe. For those who like to eat their coffee for dessert, don’t miss this café au lait creme brulée.

MORE ABOUT THIS RECIPE OF THE CAFÉ AU LAIT
There are many variations to the café au lait. The European version, the Asian version and the other western versions of this dish are very different. The Europeans prefer to aerate the milk and create a foam from the milk to garnish before serving. Whereas the Asians prefer it skimmed and clear. However, the Americans and others prefer it either way.
One beverage and many variations are what makes the café au lait a global delicacy.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS CAFÉ AU LAIT WITH FIFA

Preparation Steps of Cafe au Lait


  1. Into a large cup, pour equal parts of hot strong coffee and steamed milk, reserving the foam.
  2. Stir.
  3. Spoon reserved foam on top and serve hot.
  4. If you're artistic, you might want to try your hand at using the steamed milk to create latte art.

How to create foam for step 1?

  1. Pour the desired amount of milk into a glass jar (a Mason jar works well).
  2. Screw on a cover and shake the jar hard for 45 seconds. This will incorporate air (similar to what happens when heavy cream is whipped). Stop shaking when the milk has doubled in volume.
  3. Unscrew the cover and place the jar in a microwave and heat on high for 30 to 45 seconds. Watch it carefully and do not overheat it.
