The last 10 years have been filled with blogging, trying out new recipes and spending a lot of time in the kitchen. My life has revolved around food, gathering ideas and listening to others talk about food. When I dine at a new restaurant with a fellow food lover, we’re often bellied up to the bar to get the inside scoop on what’s good, what’s new and what’s happening.
There’s a new coffee shop in the Twin Cities. Its brew comes with bitters in it, even though bitters are more commonly thought of as an ingredient for cocktails, not java. Furthermore, the coffee you can get at Five Watt is bought directly from a roaster based in Wisconsin.
Bitters usually bring one thing to mind: an Old Fashioned cocktail. But it’s not just about cocktails anymore. Bitters are also used in sodas, food, even cotton candy.
