Cookbook Review: Brunch the Sunday Way

What really excites me about this book are the wonderful pictures of food and the authors. This is a collection of recipes that have been staples of their London restaurant, Sunday, and I am sure it is a thrill for locals to have a little something to tide them over while they are closed. There is a bit of everything in this cookbook that is sure to please just about anyone.

The offerings include:

  • Eggs the Sunday Way
  • Toast the Sunday Way
  • Waffles, Pancakes, and Fritters
  • Baking the Sunday Way
  • Jams the Sunday Way
  • Drinks the Sunday Way

❀ Stunning and Easy to Follow Recipes

If you are outside the U.K., some of the ingredients might be difficult to source. As well, this is a British recipe book and the measurements are metric so there will be some conversions to make if you use a different system. With that in mind, the recipes are quite easy to follow and will provide stunning results.

❀ Banana Bread is wonderful

I gave the banana bread recipe a try and found it to be an interesting variation on an old favourite. The bananas are left chunky, which really adds a wonderful element of texture to the bread. It is a simple change that really perked up a classic bread.
