Brunch & Co Event #20 - Christmas in July Brunch!
A very quick post to share a few photos of the brunch we did today for Su-Lin and her friends.
Upon Su-Lin's request, we prepared a menu inspired by the theme "Christmas in July" - a novel idea for all-year-round 32 degrees Singapore (!!) but with a little imagination (and full throttle aircon), I think we did pretty well turning our little underground restaurant into a winter wonderland - complete with giant snowballs hanging from the ceiling! We also decorated the table with homemade white chocolate and candy cane cookies.
We kicked off the festivities with warm mulled wine and a lemon & mint iced tea. Then served a creamy chai tea infused rice pudding topped with poached pears, figs & cherries.
Following on, we served a herb stuffed roasted chicken breast, cranberry jelly, roast potatoes, carrots & an orange, hazelnut snow pea & French bean salad.
After a short break we served up a green apple & calvado sorbet....
And to finish everybody off we served up individual pots of Baked Alaska - Christmas style! Valrhona chocolate fudge cake topped with homemade fruit mince pie ice cream and covered in a toasted cinnamon meringue.
We hope you all had a fun & yummy day! We're now off to prepare for a busy week ahead - an exciting catering job on Friday and another private brunch on Sunday - woohoo!
Happy Brunching to one and all!
