Delicious recipes: check. A killer cocktail: check. The perfect party menu for the season (that you’ll love cooking with friends): check (and check).
It’s the weekend, and you’re ready to party (and cook). This celebration-worthy brunch menu is the perfect excuse to do just that. It’s “party in the kitchen” fare, so tell your friends to come over hungry and prepared to cook.
Draw them into the kitchen with fresh grapefruit-tequila cocktails. As people sip their drinks, you can platter the family-style first course—a creamy, crunchy, salty salad of smoked trout and cucumbers. The main course of poached eggs with garlicky sautéed mushrooms and brioche comes together quickly with a few extra hands, and the payoff is oh-so-satisfying. While those plates are being cleared, pop the pancake soufflé muffins in the oven and get ready for high praise when they come out. Topped with strawberry-maple syrup and confectioners’ sugar, they’re like your favorite breakfast dish and dessert all in one. It’s definitely time to rise and dine.
