What rhymes with Al Pacino? Cappuccino of course! I know. It’s pretty cheesy; but not when you are a fan of Mr.Tarantino, who’s favorite drink is a good cup of cappuccino. Okay, I am going to stop that now. Let’s talk about cappuccino itself. This delicious frothy cup of espresso with cream or milk and topped with foamed milk, is best known to accompany one’s dessert. However, did you know that a good cup of cappuccino heightens the flavors of any other meals? What follows is a series of combination that tastes so much better when paired with an artistic cup of cappuccino.
