Bicerin


Bicerin: a mix of coffee espresso, chocolate (the process is a well-guarded secret) and fresh cream...

Bicerin: un insieme di caffè espresso appena fatto, cioccolata (preparata con un procedimento segreto) e crema di latte fresca...

I've never heard of it but it looks delicious. And the restaurant itself looks quite stylish.

Grazie.

Bill said...

I have never tasted that but it sure sound very good.

Kim said...

Why, thank you Fabrizio. That looks lovely and I know I would like to try it. I like the slant of your photo, too. So charming with the candle glow.

My new mission in life is to find a version of this in my city. Yum. Thank you. :D

Oh my! I thought for a moment they were glasses of Guiness and now I see they are something even naughtier. Oh my....!

Very nice photo. It looks like very welcoming with the canlelight in the foreground. The tilt of the shot conduces to that effect. Well done, Fabrizio.

Delizioso! Ciao. A.

Saretta said...

Finally, Bicerin! Now I want home delivery!

Gunn said...

A very well composed photo. It looks nice and also something that would have been nice now..... -9C , still plenty of snow and BLUE sky, even SUNshine here:)

My wife and I were in Torino in November, and there are a few things we miss dearly: giandujotto, passito, and bicerin! Great picture.

AmyR and Saretta, no way to find it elsewhere, no way to deliver it in any way SO you have to come to visit Torino...

-K-, Bill, Kim, lewi14, Gunn (I know how cold is there), thank you so so much !

Jilly, you believe it or not, when I saw how the photo did come out I had the absolutely same idea: a pint of Guinness :-))))

altadenahiker, prego :-)

ciao Antonella !

kpas, yes you missed something that really deserved to be tasted (I especially mean giandujotto and bicerin, passito is not so typical of Torino and you can find it abroad too). I hope you will have chance to come again !

Fabrizio, it "sounds" similar to what we would call a mocha, but I suspect it is much richer and more intense. The elegance of the stemware definitely puts this in a much higher and more special class. Perhaps one day you can introduce me to Bicerin -:)
