Few things are better than breaking bread with friends over delicious food and drink, sharing stories and snippets of life. And there’s no better way to celebrate friendship than a bright and sunny brunch. From avocado to eggs and pancakes and everything in between, find your bliss - and the best recipes! - with Thermomix®.
Fresh air and homemade drinks are the perfect pairing for bringing brunchtime magic to life. Gather your friends and family in an open space to catch up after a long year. Make an event of it with festive champagne cocktails to kick off the meal as you recharge and reconnect.
Hosting a successful brunch doesn’t have to be an overwhelming endeavour. Follow these stress-free tips and you’ll be one step closer to a restaurant-quality brunch in the comfort of your own home:
Prepare everything you need the night before. Decide on the theme and colours of your table by selecting your plates, glasses, silverware, and napkins. Don't forget the flowers!
Make drinks and cocktails in advance. Mix up pitchers of iced tea, fruit punch and cocktails ahead of time, so they’re ready to pour when your guests arrive. Don't forget the ice!
Have a buffet so guests can serve themselves. This not only gives your guests plenty of choices, it helps take the pressure off of serving dishes individually and ensures everyone can enjoy as much or as little as they want!
Serve dishes that don’t require on-the-spot or last-minute preparation. Quiches, frittatas, and casseroles are great for brunch and can be prepared beforehand and heated the next day to fill your house with warm, inviting aromas.
Do a food allergy check. If you know someone who has an allergy or is on a specific food regimen, find options on Cookidoo® that are free from that allergen and fit their dietary needs.
Include a kid’s table. Rather than giving the kiddos fancy breakfast dishes they may not enjoy, create a table with kid-friendly fare such as muffins, cereal, pancakes, and French toast.
