Last week a quick breakfast with my brother spontaneously turned into a brunch of note. I was checking my supplies for breakfast, while my brother and his fiance were having a lie in, when I realized I didn't have any bread in the cupboard. So I 'quickly' whipped up two loaves of challah and slow sauteed some brown mushrooms with a dash of soy and truffle oil at the end. My brother had bought some beautiful cheeses and fruit which I added to the spread.
Realizing that this was a meal which needed to be shared, we spontaneously invited a friend of my brothers who lives down the road, Callie Maritz of Cakebread fame. We were now set for the perfect lazy brunch, with great food and company.
Callie and his sister, Marie-Louis do all kinds of fabulous foodie things. Just type 'Cakebread’s Callie Maritz and Mari-Louis Guy' into a google search and check out all their fabulousness.
