Chef Tips

To make the creamy, milky foam I adore on my latte, I have a special stainless steel cup for steaming milk that looks much like a French press coffee maker. When I quickly pump the filter in and out of the hot milk, it makes a yummy creamy foam. Failing that, a quick blast with an immersion blender will also make the milk foam, but do it in a tall cup or glass so it doesn’t go everywhere.
