When it comes to special occasions, many people turn to food as a way to connect and bond with loved ones. Sunday brunch is an increasingly popular occasion for many families who look forward to getting together over a nice meal. The history of brunch, as is the case with many other culinary traditions, is a bit hazy, but it began in England and took 30 years to catch on in the United States. In fact, the word “brunch” first appeared in an article in Hunter’s Weekly back in 1895. The article was titled, “Brunch: A Plea,” and was written by British author Guy Beringer, who suggested an alternative to traditional post-church meals.
“Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting,” he said in the article. “It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”
This Easter Sunday, do yourself and your loved ones a favor by organizing an Easter family brunch special. Here are some tips to help you plan the ultimate brunch.
As they say, variety is the spice of life. When you create your Sunday brunch menu, variety is key. Choose an equal balance of both breakfast and lunch foods, and try to offer some lighter options and appetizers as well.
If the weather is nice, consider moving your brunch outdoors. This is especially ideal if you have a porch or patio, but a simple picnic table in the backyard will work just as well. There’s nothing like enjoying a nice meal outdoors.
One key aspect of many brunches is the prospect of enjoying a nice mimosa with your meal. Consider providing mimosas or Bloody Marys to your guests for an extra level of class and relaxation. For those who would rather skip the alcohol, try to keep other beverages on hand, like tea and coffee.
