The pandemic has certainly brought all of our inner chefs to the fore. I know I have been cooking up a storm these last six months! If you’ve been cooking, have you run out of ideas yet? I’ve found myself looking online for various ways to cook certain produce, or finding a different way to present a familiar dish so my family is not bored.
My fellow Dame (of Les Dames d’Escoffier) Belinda Smith-Sullivan is a chef, author, spice blends entrepreneur, and a commercially rated pilot. Her latest cookbook, Let’s Brunch, is a cacophony of delightful recipes for you to create at home.
Let’s Brunch opens with breads and toppings, where you’ll find both savory and sweet selections to satiate all your fussy tastebuds.
My favorites include Caramelized Onions and Feta Mini Tarts which can be made ahead of time. Chef Belinda would absolutely make pie crust from scratch but since I am terrible with dough, I choose to use store-bought.
