Re: I need recipes for coffee food

Tons - what sorts of dishes were you thinking of? Main course? Dessert?

If you're looking for foods that will actually give you the caffeine effects that drinking a cup of coffee would, then I'm not so sure about that.... you'd probably just have to serve the dish with coffee as a beverage. =)

But if you're just wanting that coffee flavor, I bet I could suggest quite a few!

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

Anything you make with coffee is likely to be a desert and unlikely to have significant caffeine.

Tiramisu is delish...

Coffee ice cream! Coffee brownies!

I've had grilled steaks that were marinated in a coffee marinade. Yum!

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

My wife made a Chocolate Bomb (flourless cake) for New Year's Eve one year. The next day everyone was commenting on how they couldn't sleep! Let me know if you want the recipe and I'll try to dig it up.

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

do you want the taste of COFFEE or do you want CAFFEINE?

because if you want a 'stimulant-containing' food, i'd look into GUARANA. due to the very strong, special taste of coffee, coffee cannot be used e.g. in main courses (at least i think so - coffee only goes well with cake or ice-cream or... something sweet), but i think you could use guarana powder in main dishes, too.

Quote:
As a dietary supplement, guarana is an effective energy booster – it contains about twice the caffeine found in coffee beans (about 2-4.5% caffeine in guarana seeds compared to 1-2% for coffee beans).
Quote:
In the United States, guarana has the status of being generally recognized as safe (GRAS)
from wikipedia


also, i found that guarana has a "prolonged-release" form of caffeine - it doesnt kick in as strong but therefor, lasts longer than coffee.

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

If it's the coffee taste you're going for, though, there are plenty of recipes - for meat and main courses, too! Sounds like that's not what the OP was going for, though. =)

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

Some Japanese exchange students we had stay with us one summer introduced us to an awesome simple coffee dessert... coffee jello!

Mix: Strong black coffee & plain gelatine powder. (available at any grocery store)

Pour into coffee mugs & put in the fridge to set just like any jello.

Top with whipped cream/coolwhip/whatever whipped topping you prefer & serve with a spoon.

Pretty tasty, simple, and probably something your coffee loving guests have never tried before. 8)

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

You could probably add coffee to chili. I know it sounds strange. But I saw coco added to chili once, my best friend tried that & it was good. So why not coffee. Bam! I'd either use instant freeze-dried, or just pour a little espresso into the chili.

Come to think of it. I think that I'll make some chili soon and try that very thing!

Re: I need recipes for coffee food

"Coffee walnut whips"

Ingredients
350g/12oz milk chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp coffee essence
˝ tbsp soft light brown sugar
11 walnuts
Preparation method
Set aside 50g/1ľoz of the chocolate for later, and temper the remaining chocolate. To temper, melt the milk chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Don’t let the bowl touch the water or the chocolate will burn and don’t let any water into the chocolate or the chocolate will seize.
Continue to heat the chocolate until it measures 42C/107F on a chocolate thermometer. Then take it off the heat and let it cool to 31C/88F.
Use a clean, grease-free brush or teaspoon to coat and line each of the fluted cups in the mould with the chocolate. You need to do this quickly or the chocolate will start to set and be too thick to work with.
Use a spatula to scrape away any chocolate from the top of the mould. Save any chocolate that you haven’t used to use again later.
Put the moulds in the fridge to set for around 20 minutes.
To make the filling, put the coffee essence in a measuring jug and add enough cold water to make it up to 50ml/2fl oz. Pour into a pan, add the sugar and bring to the boil. Simmer for one minute.
Put the reserved 50g/1ľoz of milk chocolate in a bowl. Add the coffee liquid and stir to help the chocolate melt, then leave until cold. Leave it to thicken up in the fridge for an hour or so before filling the moulds.
Take the moulds out of the fridge. Spoon the chocolate and coffee mixture into the moulds and leave to set overnight.
To seal the walnut whips, temper the remaining milk chocolate, using up any chocolate leftover from earlier.
Using a teaspoon, spoon the chocolate over the filling to cover.
Top each with a walnut. Chill for at least 30 minutes until set, then carefully upturn the mould onto a board to release the walnut whips.
Serve after dinner with coffee.


They are very tasty.
