Good to see this old recipe in print. I have this and it is very, very good but find that it needs a dash of brandy (or cognac) to liven it up. Also the coffee needs to be strong and rich. Anyway, it is suitable for any occasion and looks great topped with some shaved chocolate and toasted almonds.
