Recipe for National Café Au Lait Day – February 17, 2018


February 17th has been chosen as National Café Au Lait Day.

What is Café Au Lait ? It is French for “coffee with milk” but traditional cafe au lait isn’t just coffee with any milk.  It’s coffee with hot milk.

In honor of the holiday, KRUPS, the leader in coffee makers and kitchen appliances, has provided a Café Au Lait  recipe for you to enjoy.
