Italian Style ever: the perfect breakfast

Accompanied by my motto” Italian style ever”, today I will tell you something about the two typical ways of having breakfast in Italy. First of all, breakfast can be made either at the bar or comfortably at home. In both cases you are in perfect style. Breakfast at home is made with the classic cup of coffee and worm milk (coffee made preferably with moka) and biscuits or rusks with jam. The biscuits, which we call ” da inzuppo (to be drenched)” – just because they can be soaked in coffee and milk – must have a consistency that does not break in the cup. The children are crazy about coffee, milk and biscuits, especially when the biscuits have chocolate, while the mothers prefer the rusks (better if integrals) with the jam. Breakfast at the bar is based on croissant and cappuccino. Someone replaces the cappuccino with an espresso. For example, I never drink cappuccino and “pezzo dolce (sweet piece)” because I love the contrast of the sweet with the bitterness of coffee. If you want to stay a little lighter, always remaining in style, the cornetto replaces a rice pudding. If you have breakfast at the bar, the right time is from 7:30 in the morning, until around 10: 30-11: 00. I advise you not to have breakfast after 11:00, otherwise you will skip the lunch!
