Recipe Provided by Gourmet Food Group
What was true in 1895 rings even truer now. The rising popularity of brunch, the portmanteau concept that may well have kick-started the entire breakfast after hours obsession, has moved into edgy hipster territory. Brunch is very much an experiential and social experience, perfectly suited to millennials looking to recharge after a hectic work week and hang out with friends. Consider today’s brunch a subculture in itself, characterized by deconstructed recipes with luxurious ingredients such as lobster and exotic herbs, exciting tastes, carefully crafted cocktails, and special touches like an old-fashioned photo booth or a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Creativity flourishes here, with classic eggs Benedict transformed into lobster roll Benedict, lemon ricotta pancakes with house preserves taking over for traditional buttermilk flapjacks, cheese and egg quiches given a fresh face with smoked scallops and hot pepper bacon jam, and a Peruvian-style salmon frittata served in a healthy halo of quinoa cake and roasted carrot and parsnip hash.
