Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Frothing Cappuccino

kitchen quick tips
Cold skim milk is the best choice for achieving a full froth for cappuccino. Why? The proteins in the milk have been absorbed which gives stability to the bubbles at the liquid's surface so you get a longer lasting froth.

that's interesting... I haven't had much use for substituting skim milk, always lacks something in teh final product... glad it has a use

Skim milk is one of those acquired tastes. I love a heavy cream in my coffee but with cappuccino that skim milk really makes a difference. The nice thing is I'm not getting all the calories of my normal heavy cream so that has to count for something :)
