Brunch…aka my most favorite meal time, the one that usually puts me in a food coma and the one that I have missed terribly since I left the states. I know there are places in Switzerland where you can have a nice brunch. In fact, I thoroughly enjoy the brunches hosted by the local farms where everything on the menu is fresh, homemade, homegrown, yumminess. A locavores delight!
However, after this past Easter Sunday, I’m adding a new favorite to my list of brunch spots in Switzerland. The home of Marisa and Mike (by invitation only)!
We were welcomed to an assortment of charcuterie and cheese, croissants, scrambled eggs, steak, bacon, balsamic marinated cherry tomatoes, mushrooms sauteed in white wine, home fries and baked beans and fresh baked rolls and Zopf and jellies and jams and yogurt and and and…everything was delicious!
Did I wind up in a food coma? Not this time. I had to contain myself around new company for fear of embarrassing not only myself, but Dirk as well.
We rounded out our terrific brunch with Marisa’s homemade vanilla cupcakes with lemon frosting. As many of you know, I’m partial to all-things-edible in miniature, single-serving form and cupcakes are at the top of that list. Score!
Cheers to a great host and hostess, great food/drink, and great company. Mixing and mingling at its finest!
