Great coffee and great food go hand in hand. To me, there is something truly wonderful about enjoying a perfectly brewed cup of coffee. It takes me back to my days growing up in Austria, where drinking coffee in traditional cafes was elevated to an art form.
Recently, it became a mission of mine to create a true coffee experience in a bottle for you to enjoy in your home, in your office or on the go. Working closely with Sherry Yard, my colleague and executive pastry chef at Spago, we went through several incarnations before settling on final recipes that truly represented my culinary style. And thus my Culinary Iced Coffees were born.
The coffees we selected are sourced from some of the world’s best, certified organic coffee farms in Ethiopia, Peru, Colombia and Mexico. The flavor and aroma are what you might expect from a cup of freshly brewed French Roast espresso.
And my favorite part, of course, was getting in the kitchen and creating the four delicious flavors. We borrowed ideas and ingredients from some of our favorite desserts like chocolate mousse, meringue, caramel, Tahitian vanilla and crème brulée. We believe the four flavors we developed have just the right ratio of milk, sugar, and organic ingredients to create a well balanced and refreshing chilled coffee drink that you can enjoy anywhere and at anytime.
So it is with pride and pleasure that I invite you to go on a culinary journey with me while you sip and savor one of my Wolfgang Puck Culinary Iced Coffees.
Cheers, my friends!
