Breakfast—we're told it's the most important meal of the day. But for many, breakfast means stumbling out the door with just a mug of coffee and a muffin. Although this might suffice once in awhile, more variety is necessary—to keep people both healthy and interested. The Culinary Institute of America has assembled more than 175 recipes that will ensure a nutritious, satisfying, and delicious breakfast or brunch.
Whether you are looking for new or familiar breakfast and brunch recipes, you'll find them all in The Culinary Institute of America Breakfasts & Brunches. They've included everything from beverages, breads, and pastries, to breakfast and brunch standards like pancakes, crêpes, waffles, and eggs.
Breakfasts & Brunches is divided into nine sensible chapters. The first chapter, Breakfast & Brunch Mise en Place, outlines everything you will need, from a well-stocked pantry to essential equipment, to create the wonderful recipes found in the following chapters: Muffins, Quick Breads & Coffee Cakes; Breakfast & Brunch Drinks; Sweet and Savory Breads & Pastries; Pancakes, Waffles & Crêpes; Eggs; Grains & Legumes; Meats, Fish & Potatoes; and Soups, Salads & Small Bites. More than 100 full-color photos complement many of the suggested menus, which include such recipes as:
* Hot Mulled Cider
* Ham & Cheddar Scones
* Buckwheat Blinis with Apple Butter
* Crêpes with Spicy Mushroom & Queso Fresco Filling
* Scotch Eggs
* Sun-Dried Tomato & Goat Cheese Tartlets
Breakfast can be as simple or as elaborate as time and appetite dictate. From market to menu, Breakfasts & Brunches has the techniques, tips, and tricks to make the first meal of the day your most memorable one.
