Cafe au Lait
I'm usually an extremist when it comes to coffe. Depending on the weather, my mood, or the morning's breakfast prospects, I'll either have it black or with a generous slip of cream. Rarely milk.
I don't do lattes, but if I were to have milk with my morning java, it would most certainly be in the form of a cafe au lait. The 1:1 milk-to-coffee ratio in a cafe au lait sits fairly in the middle of my normal spectrum. The Book's recipe, if one could call it that, comes to us as a letter to the editor which suggests using France's cafe au lait habit as an antidote to our animal-heavy diets.
Give it what reason you will. I'm a cafe au lait convert.
