    BecR's Note:

    Literally "coffee with milk", café au lait is a drink made of coffee and scalded milk. It is the staple coffee drink of French Louisiana and is often served in bowls (rather than in cups or mugs) in Acadiana. This enticing 'French Vanilla' version of the famous morning or dessert beverage is richly redolent with the wafting scent of real vanilla. Wonderful! Pairs beautifully with any traditional New Orleans or Acadian cuisine such as bread pudding or beignets, may I suggest my Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding With Warm Vanilla Sauce. I hope you enjoy as much as we do! From Country Living Magazine.
