All the rage on Sundays, the brunch phenomenon is gaining ground in many countries. Certain major cities like New York, Paris and London have become adepts of the Sunday brunch, with hotels and restaurants offering guests a wide range of drinks and sweet and savoury dishes from which to concoct their own perfect brunch. What’s your pleasure?
Brunch – delicious, filling and highly sociable!
Sunday brunch usually takes place between noon and 3pm, and is a time for family and friends to get together for a moment of pure, unadulterated pleasure. When at home, everyone mucks in to help prepare what is actually a full meal, combining breakfast specialities with traditional fayre. Dessert isn’t forgotten, or course, and often features local dishes – American cheesecakes and cupcakes, Italian tiramisu, or English fruit cake. Mix and match to give your brunches that extra pizzazz!
Savoury dishes also tend to reflect the local specialities. There may be cold platters of vegetables, terrines and all kinds of salads, plus a meat or fish dish. What makes for a good brunch? The variety of dishes, but also the ability to pick and choose as you like. While some may start with coffee and toast, others prefer to begin with the savoury and end on a sweet note. Go ahead and enjoy a delicious brunch – just how you like it!
