In one of my favorite books, Kitchen Confidential, chef/author Anthony Bourdain writes about how brunch is the absolute anathema for real chefs. From the unchallenging, cookie cutter plates to the annoying customers, basically he HATES BRUNCH.
I love brunch. SO MUCH. It makes me happy. I love drinking bellinis, I love knowing exactly what the menu is, I LOVE BRUNCH. I'm a morning person and breakfast happens to be my favorite meal.
So today, I celebrate brunch. And send my apologies to Anthony. :-)
