brunch spread

To commemorate 6 months of living in Los Angeles, I made brunch for a few friends. I might have overdone it a bit with the amount of food, but there were so many recipes that I wanted to try. I also needed an excuse to use my table for the first time. Just because I make fancy food, doesn’t mean I don’t usually eat it by myself in front of the television.

I made a lettuce wedge of butter bibb and paired it with some fruit. Missing from the pic is the raspberry vinaigrette I made. The dressing is made of raspberries, raspberry vinegar, egg yolk, oil, and water blended together. It wasn’t the best party food because I had to plate it for each person individually, but otherwise quite delicious.

I spent the day ahead of time preparing dishes so that everything would be ready when my guests arrived. This baked french toast bread pudding was perfect for that. The challah is soaked in the custard overnight and just has to bake in the morning. I made some candied pecans to top it with. Delicious!

I made this mushroom and fontina quiche with truffle cream sauce.  I sauteed some crimini, oyster and shitake mushroom in butter with shallots. I guess anything sauteed in butter with shallots is a pretty good start to a recipe. My friend Megan brought delicious pumpkin muffins, which you can see a peak of in the corner.

I also made cornmeal cake with berries and whipped cream, but I didn’t get a picture of that. Thanks to my friends for coming over and making me delicious things like a bloody mary with tequila! I think I better start planning the menu for my next brunch.
