Hi Friends! I am overflowing with energy this morning. Because not only am I sufficiently caffeinated, but I also have some exciting news to share with you.
I’m a Lavazza Passionista!!!
Sorry for yelling at you on a Monday morning. I warned you that I was excited.
So what does that mean? Well, it means that I’m going to be working as part of the Lavazza Team to bring you some coffee-inspired recipes over the next several months. Get ready to go on a fun and delicious caffeinated journey!
I was absolutely thrilled when Lavazza asked me to become part of their Lavazza Passionista Team. As the #1 selling coffee in Italy and a recognized global leader in Italian espresso, Lavazza is dedicated to bringing people around the world an authentic Italian coffee experience. And as a family company, Lavazza has been owned and operated by four generations of the Lavazza clan since it’s conception almost 120 years ago. That’s pretty cool. And something I can really get behind.
And of course, you all know that not only do I love drinking coffee (and I must admit to being a bit of a coffee snob), but I also love incorporating it into both sweet and savory dishes.
To kick things off, I wanted to do something a little bit unexpected. So I paired coffee with carrots. I bet you didn’t see that one coming!
OK, you totally saw that coming because it’s the title of this post. I know. Sorry.
Anyways. This easy, three ingredient coffee glaze brings a real depth of flavor to some otherwise typical, boring oven roasted carrots. In fact, these Coffee Glazed Roasted Carrots are special. And absolutely perfect for, and totally worthy of, your next Holiday meal (hint: Easter!).
Lavazza has four specialty drip coffee blends – Classico, Gran Aroma, Gran Selezione and Perfetto. I used Perfetto in this recipe, which is the boldest of their blends. But any one that you choose would be great.
