Avocado heaven is here, in Brooklyn, where three guys from Italy—Alessandro Biggi, Francesco Brachetti, and Alberto Gramigni—opened the world’s first avocado bar, Avocaderia. The restaurant is a huge hit, people come from all over the world, and lines can turn a corner. The recipes in their new cookbook, also called Avocaderia, make me want to cook like crazy.
Sure, there’s avocado toast, but there’s also an avocado burger, panko-crusted avocado slices, and avocado blueberry pancakes made with brown sugar, coconut milk, aged rum, glazed with fresh ginger syrup. And for dessert, a dairy-free avocado chocolate mousse. If you eat an avocado every day, like I do, this book will boost your avocado creativity so you’ll never slip into that avocado toast rut or make the same ‘ol guac day after day.
