Hop aboard this train to good taste! The latest issue of The Saturday Evening Post features Celebrity Chef Curtis Stone and his tips for the Ultimate Brunch…as well as a few recipes to try! Feast your eyes on Curtis’ Bagel, Egg, and Mushroom Brunch: sautéed wild mushrooms, on a toasted bagel with prosciutto and poached eggs. A symphony of savage flavors – it’s exquisite! More recipes below…now for some key input from the chef himself:
1. For the freshest, fluffiest pancakes and waffles, prepare batters just before cooking. If the batter sits too long, it will start to ferment, giving these breakfast goodies a sour flavor.
2. Outdo O.J. by juicing other fruits that are in season. Summer peaches and raspberries make delicious nectars that you can drink alone or turn into bellinis and mimosas.
3. Most of us show up hungry for brunch, so put out a fruit platter, some yogurt and granola, or a spread of smoked salmon and bagels for your guests to nibble on when they arrive.
