Brunch is a sacred social ritual for me these days and one I’d much rather indulge in than dinner or cocktails or, gasp, even a night on the tiles. It’s true I may need to get a life but the habit of dishing up a salty bacon and smocked salmon balanced with green, life-giving goodies and sweet potatoes, home-made guacamole, corn fritters or whatever the hell you’re into, makes me happy. It feels like a meal where bonding is done, it’s more intimate and personal and usually ends up with Sunday drifting along in a blur of laughter and endless chatter. Bloody Mary’s are optional but recommended… Try a DIY station where your crew can add booze, tomatoes and all the spicy dreams to suit their tastes!
