Two Bicerin, Per Favore

I am going to be traipsing around southern France and northern Italy for the first two weeks of June, so I was happy to see this post in the T Magazine blog today about Turin’s special version of a cappuccino: the bicerin. The Times says:

“The drink comes in a stemmed glass and is a precise layering of fine espresso, melted chocolate and rich steamed milk. Its sweeter, more youthful counterpart, the house’s caffè Baratti e Milano, is espresso prepared with whipped cream, chopped hazelnuts and gianduja, an indigenous chemistry of chocolate and hazelnuts that could outshine poor old Nutella on any sunny Turinese afternoon.”

Sounds pretty great, right? I’ve already made a note to stop by Baratti & Milano when I’m in Turin and I will be sure to order one of these! Let me know if you have other suggestions for what I should do around Vence, France, Monaco, Lago di Como, or Milan!
