Lazy mornings have never tasted as good as they do in The World's Best Brunches, published this March from global travel authority Lonely Planet.
This is the third release in Lonely Planet's World's Best… series of food books, following The World's Best Street Food (2012) and The World's Best Spicy Food (2014).
Brunch - a term originally coined for Saturday night carousers who couldn't wake up for breakfast - has evolved into a sunny, social meal beloved the world over.
And so…here is The World's Best Brunches, a collection of mid-morning meals accompanied by the origin of each dish, the best place to sample a bite, and an easy-to-prepare recipe for cooking it at home.
With contributions by 42 food writers from around the world, The World's Best Brunches features:
* 100 authentic recipes for dishes (ranging from Brazil's Açai Bowl to China's Zongzi) as well as drinks & condiments (from France's Bloody Mary to the USA's Tomato Ketchup), with simple, clear instructions for perfect preparation.
* A glossary of exotic ingredients with suggestions for easy-to-find alternatives.
* A Foreword by acclaimed Australian chef Bill Granger, who writes:
“In a time when we're all increasingly busy brunch seems to have a new importance. Sure, in some ways it's a luxury, like afternoon tea, but we need these feel-good rituals that give us the chance to reconnect with friends, families, food and ourselves, all the more. The fact that brunch is not on the everyday 'schedule' in the same way that breakfast, lunch and dinner are gives it an air of spontaneous, devil-may-care, unstructured abandon that we all deserve to indulge in from time to time.”
This is a great cookbook to introduce you, and your palate to many different traditional recipes from around the world! As you can see, you get full color pictures on every page, along with information about the dish, it's traditional service, where to find prime examples, and variations you canmake. You really could 'cook your way around the world' with this great little brunch cookbook! the top buttons on each page, advise you whether a recipe is Easy, medium or Complex, and whether it Vegetarian, Healthy and indulgent. Additional symbols let you know whether a knife and fork (or spoon or chopsticks!) are required, or if it is able to be ate with your hands. So the beginner cook can start with the easy recipes and work their way to the complex ones. There are also recipes for condiments and drinks, so your brunch menu is complete!
