A Cozy Brunch to Share
April 9, 2019 – by May Houri and Julie Lapointe
Receiving family for brunch at a cozy and lazy Sunday is one of our favorite things to do. With the newest trends of grazing tables, it’s so much easier than ever. No need for a set menu or an elaborate type breakfast/ lunch. Everything is placed at the center of the table, haphazardly like a pro did.
We created this one using the season’s fruits and making a scrumptious tart with said fruits.
It’s such a simple yet pretty idea when you place the platters of food at the center of the table.
Not only can you use fruits, but you can use cold cuts, cheese, nuts and quiches. Why not go the extra mile and make some waffles to go with the fruits. Drizzles some syrup and chocolate to top it all off!
Using a great tablecloth can spice up the look of the grazing table. Create height and depth with different serving dishes, making some of the dishes stand out more. Use wood platters for that rustic look and even add in some marble for a touch of sophistication.
In the end, when choosing your food, go for texture, colour and keeping them bite size for everyone to enjoy! Have fun with it! It’s a lazy, laid back type of Sunday brunch.
