Announcing Sugar High Friday #11 - Coffee
Posted on Thursday 28th of July 2005 under
The premises are simple â€“ bloggers post recipes, stories, etc based on a common theme on a Friday each month. For August the theme is sweets with coffee as one of the ingredients .
Coffee, we think, makes an excellent theme for a Sugar High Friday. After all the combination of coffeeâ€™s rich bitterness and sugar is a marriage that has sustained million of people all over the world. The date for posting is on or before the 12th of August and the address to send in your recipes is firstname.lastname@example.org. To make things easy for us please add SHF in the mail's title.
Just one requestâ€“ please, please no pull- me- up recipes (or as they are known in their local form: no tira~mi~su recipes). Its not that we donâ€™t like the sweet, and it is certainly not because we subscribe to some notion that tiramisu is sooo â€œlast centuryâ€. The reason is that itâ€™s the recipe par excellence that pops in one's mind when one things of a sweet with coffee and we would like to see something different for the competition.
Looking forward to all those coffee-inspired sweets!
Mm! how sweet the coffee tastes,
more delicious than a thousand kisses,
mellower than muscatel wine.
Coffee, coffee I must have,
and if someone wishes to give me a treat,
ah, then pour me out some coffee!
