An enticing collection of indulgent treats to serve with coffee Delicious and petite, the coffee-time treats that fill this gorgeous book are bound to make any occasion seriously special. In many restaurants in France, a little taste of something sweet will be provided in the form of these sophisticated coffee accompaniments, often instead of dessert. When making them at home, you can end a stylish dinner party with White Chocolate Truffles or classic Florentines; enjoy mini Madeleines or bite-size Lemon Muffins as a fabulously indulgent mid-morning snack; or even give tiny jam-filled Star biscuits or little Rum Sponges as a chic gift. While most of the recipes included can be conquered by even the most novice of chefs, for the seriously ambitious there are recipes such as espressos topped with floating spun sugar halos. Includes conversion chart.
