Every day in December, I'm blogging about one food experience from this year and being thankful for it.
Affogato, as simple as it is, always wins me over. It's a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso poured over it. What can I say? I'm a sucker for classics.
One day over the summer, I stepped out from my job to take a long overdue break. When I left the building, I didn't know I was necessarily in search of a snack, but I ended up walking to a gelato shop on Third Avenue in New York and heading in.
I ordered an affogato, even though I wasn't that hungry. I just needed the break and needed a reason to dally away from the office for an extra 15 minutes.
Food isn't eaten only to fulfill hunger . The buzzy caffeinated affogato that I had on the day is a perfect example.
