Italian roast chicken with peppers and olives
A roast chicken always is celebratory. The vibrantly coloured and intensely flavoured vegetables that are cooked alongside here seem only to underline this, offering their own brightness and brio, sunny in taste as well as mood.

Recipe of Nigella Lawson

Tiramisu coffee captures the taste of the wonderful Italian dessert made from espresso coffee, cocoa, mascarpone cheese, cream, sugar, and marsala wine
Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi's version of tiramisu has a light set, rather than a firm set.

Ten Benefits of Coffe for Health, Performance & Body Composition

Get numerous benefits from coffee! Research shows that in many cases, more is better when it comes to coffee improving health. The evidence is so robust that the medical community is even changing its tune from “coffee is more trouble than it is worth” to “it is not as bad as we were told!”
This article will give you ten reasons to drink coffee and consider some of the concerns and misconceptions that surround this wonderful beverage

#5: Coffee Improves Cholesterol Health
The antioxidants in coffee can improve total cholesterol, raise “good” HDL cholesterol, and lower inflammation related to heart disease. In one study, regular coffee drinkers were asked to increase their coffee intake to 4 and then a whopping 8 cups a day. This dosing improved the ratio between “bad” LDL and HDL cholesterol by 8 percent.

#8: Caffeine Increases Power & Strength Performance
Sports scientists like to test the effect of caffeine supplements on athletic performance because isolating a part of the plant allows them to avoid confounding variables, such as the antioxidants. That said, you can improve power and strength performance by getting the right dose of pre-workout caffeine from a supplement since using coffee as your sole source of caffeine would require 6 to 9 cups for a 90 kg lifter, depending on sensitivity to the caffeine.

#10: Caffeine Increases Motivation & Reaction Time
Taking 4 mg/kg of body weight of caffeine improved reaction time on soccer skill tests in athletes when sleep deprived. A similar dose increased motivation and led athletes to voluntarily do more reps using 85 percent of a 1RM load when sleep deprived, resulting in a greater volume compared to a placebo group.
