Book Description

27 Sep 2005
There’s more to brunch than just omelettes and mimosas. Brunch can be a meal that wakes up your palate with a concordance of nuanced flavors. It can be a decadent feast worth lingering over and looking forward to all week. At Manhattan’s Five Points restaurant, chef Marc Meyer has proved this, that brunch can be an event in its own rite. He has set out to reimagine it with tempting dishes to savor and share with friends. The response has been unanimous: Five Points is one of New York City's most popular brunch spots and most coveted Sunday morning reservations. Brunch gives this special meal its full due, with more than 100 recipes for dishes that are sure to delight and inspire.

Whether you’re planning a quiet, intimate time for a couple to relax, or a lively group gathering for a shower, graduation, or holiday, there are recipes here for all occasions. You’ll learn how to turn out perfect renditions of classics with a twist such as Brown Butter Pecan Muffins, Baked Banana French Toast, and Smoked Salmon Benedict on Potato Pancakes, as well as new dishes to add to your repertory such as Churros and Mexican Hot Chocolate, Tea-Smoked Trout Salad, and Baked Eggs with Fresh Corn “Polenta” and Slow-Roasted Tomatoes.With mouthwatering photos and sections on menus and sources, Brunch is all you need to throw a stylish and sophisticated brunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brunch made fun! 1 Mar 2006
By tradess2006 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Best breakfast/brunch book I have lately read completely with excitement and anticipation for every page. The recipes are fairly easy to prepare with simple ingredients. The ricotta cheese pancakes are absolutely devine, but the waffles with rhubarb comote and whipped cream, and also the sweet potatoes hash are my favorites. The drinks are all very enticing too. Just wish I could visit the restaurant itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treat Your Friends to a Lovely Brunch 9 April 2006
By Virginia Allain - Published on Amazon.com
I discovered this book from a review in Life Magazine. Brunch seemed like a lovely, civilized way to entertain, but how do you cope with cooking omelets for more than two people or getting everything fresh/warm/chilled to the table in a timely fashion?

This books answers those questions. The baked omelet cassarole sounds delish. I can even make orange marmalade (once my orange tree really gets to producing). You can buy the oranges too, if you don't have a tree.

The book also suggests themes, so you can make a party of brunch and there are even drink recipes (bloody Marys, bellinis and a blackberry-bay leaf spritzer).

The recipe for Smoked Salmon Benedict is worth the price of the book but there are so many other recipes for those of us who love to entertain and/or those of us who think Brunch is the best idea anyone ever came up with!
5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST lemon ricotta pancakes! 7 July 2013
By BucksCoGal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book because we love brunch at Five Points and especially because my husband loves their lemon ricotta pancakes. I got up early one Sunday morning to surprise him by making the pancakes that he always orders when we go the restaurant. I didn't think the pancakes would turn out the same as those we love eating at the restaurant but he said they were just as good. I scored BIG points that day with him. It's a great recipe when you want to impress someone. The book, as a whole, is a great go-to cookbook when you have loved ones or guests on a Sunday morning. There will be plenty of yums, oohs and ahhs when you serve anything from this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars nice brunch book 30 April 2013

I Really like this book, great brunch recieps, nice pics, good ideas. I have at least 300 cook books, not rachael ray and Paula Dean, betty crocker books either. Nothing wrong with that if you like that, I am an executive chef of a fine dining restaurant outside Boston. I have all the regulars Thomas Keller, Eric Ripert, Gordon Ramsey, Daniel Boulud, MODERNIST CUISINE, El Bulli, you name it, I have it. (dont buy sous vide for the home cook, awful book, worst book I own) Charcuterie, Pates and Terrines, A girl and her pig, Odd Bits, Culinary Artistry, Becoming a Chef, all great books. This is in my top 5 brunch/breakfast books
