On cold winter days, all I crave is a warm affogato in my hands, reminiscent of my time in Italy. An affogato is quick and easy to make, and tastes delicious–if you have great-tasting coffee. Luckily for me and other Rutgers students, the dining hall supplies great coffee perfect for a latte, cappaccino, and of course an affogato.
Here’s what you’ll need to prepare your very own affogato:
My family recently took a two-week trip to Italy (which sadly wasn’t enough) and found ourselves craving Italian food when we arrived home. In an attempt to recreate some of the dishes we had and to relive our trip, I tried to make a simple tomato, white onion and burrata pasta. It satisfied me for a little bit, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to go back for more! Eating out in Italy taught me that oftentimes it is the simplest foods that taste the best, which is what I tried to replicate through this dish.
(I’ll be writing a few restaurant reviews and travel advice about going to Italy soon incase anyone is planning to go! But for now, enjoy this small taste of Italy!)
