Review

It’s the question many of us have been asking ourselves now that we’re working from home and have been deprived of barista-made coffee on our daily commute. What mystical alchemy is involved in making cappuccino from a sachet of powder froth up when we add boiling water? 

While Helen Lawal finds out about instant coffee, Kate Quilton is in Italy learning about the mysteries of making panettone. Who knew that the cakes have to rest upside down for 12 hours after baking otherwise they’d collapse? Matt Tebbutt is in sunny Italy too, lucky man, to find out why so many of our tinned tomatoes come from the region around Mount Vesuvius.
