The coffee? Yes but without sugar – Italian Cuisine


Toast the girl. We met her in Paris, at the Roland Garros tennis tournament where Alixe Bornon was presented by Lavazza as a new ambassador for the brand. A pastry chef not like the others, since creates desserts for diabetics. And she is diabetic herself. It seems an oxymoron and instead it is not. In the new village of the famous French tennis tournament, one of the 4 in the Grand Slam circuit, I met this 31-year-old French girl from Guadeloupe. Her story already tells her sneakers, of the classic Stan Smith with written above que la force soit avec toi (may the force be with you). «A client gave them to me to thank me for what I had done for her. It's great to see the people who come to me happy, who embrace me, the children who can taste sweets like everyone else .

In fact, creating cakes and pastries that even diabetics can eat because they do not raise the glycemic peak (using special ingredients such as lupine and coconut flour), was an extraordinary find. Also because the white chocolate dessert (a special type created by Valrhona specifically for her) with passion fruit, and a base of hazelnuts with Voce della Terra coffee from Brazil does not regret a pastry, not even a little. In its Les Belles Envies boutique on the rue Monge in Paris, people who were forbidden to think only of sweets and not by chance, were invited by Monsieur Le Presidente Emmanuel Macron to the Elysium. "I know the discomfort of not being able to eat what you want since I was diagnosed with this disease at 13 and they put me in a dick, with chicken and salad. Very difficult then to manage the frustration that is a great enemy of health . And Lavazza has hit the target by involving this young woman among her ambassadors as much as in unsuspected times she hired Ferran Adrià. «It seems an important signal to have Alixe as a team, today the nutritional aspect is essentialCommented Giuseppe Lavazza. And between a voile and a backhand, we drank (several) coffees. Throughout the Grand Slam circuit you get a million cups! When will we be able to prepare these sweets at home? "Have faith, I'm working on it," concluded Alixe.
