My lovely friend Amanda, a holistic personal chef, and I are trying to hold brunch each month. Amanda is amazing. She creates a delicious menu with local ingredients and seasonal flare. I provide some ideas and then assist with making yogurt or pickles or peeling the skins off roasted peppers. We meet early on a weekend morning, arms loaded with vegetables, eggs, & cheeses from the market. We get out the french press and then prepare a delicious brunch for our friends.
The first brunch was at Amanda & Thomas' lovely home in Carrboro/Chapel Hill. The second followed several weeks later at Tim Kiernan's house in Oakwood. We're trying to rotate between Raleigh and Chapel Hill/Carrboro. Here are photos and the menu from brunch #2. Look forward to more Brrrunch posts each month.
*I'm sad I didn't get a photo of the purple pickled eggs Amanda made. Beautiful & delicious.
