Brunch Ideas: A Brunch Experience Instead of a Dinner Party!
There’s truly no better way to start your day than surrounded by a group of your favorite people, eating a variety of delicious breakfast foods, and sipping on that perfect bloody mary, Aperol spritz, a cup of amazingly delicious small-batch Weaver's Coffee, or a mimosa or three. Brunch parties are hugely trending in the food world these days, and it's one of our favorite meals!
Hosting a brunch party can be way less daunting than you think. One of the biggest benefits is that your afternoon & evening are freed up for you & your guests to attend other events, or simply relax at home.
Brunch Ideas For A Crowd:
Brunch parties are a fantastic way to entertain guests without breaking the bank. Compared to hosting a formal dinner party, brunch is a more affordable option that allows you to serve a variety of delicious food items. You can easily customize your menu to suit your preferences, whether you're aiming for a simple spread or a more casually elegant affair.
Speaking of menus, there are plenty of popular brunch dishes to choose from. Whether you prefer savory or sweet, there's something for everyone. Let's take a closer look at some menu items that are sure to impress your guests.
Popular Brunch Menu Ideas:
Gourmet Avocado Toast
If you're a fan of avocado toast, you're not alone! It's no surprise that this dish has been a popular menu item for AWG Private Chefs over the past few years. Made with locally sourced, fresh-baked artisanal whole-grain bread, each slice is toasted to perfection. The star of the dish is hand-mashed organic ripe avocado, which is lightly seasoned with a spritz of citrus juice.
For an extra kick of flavor, try using key lime juice instead of lemon on your avocado toast. Finally, a fried egg is added to the top of the toast and a sprinkling of sea salt and red chili flakes complete the dish. With its combination of wholesome ingredients and bold flavors, it's no wonder why this dish is so beloved. Give it a try and prepare to be hooked!
Add a dollop of your favorite caviar from Tsar Nicoulai for that extra pop of salinity and style!

Cocktails For Brunch:
The Bacon Bloody Mary
When it comes to hosting an event, having a selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is key. On the boozy front, we always recommend something bubbly like Champagne or Prosecco, which can serve as the foundation for a perfect mimosa. Bubbly drinks can also refresh the palate and enhance the appetite.
For a quintessential brunch beverage, you can't go wrong with a Bacon Bloody Mary. Made with tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, creamed horseradish, pimento-stuffed green olives, a farm-fresh stalk of celery (leaves left on!), and your favorite vodka, it's the perfect blend of flavors. Top it off with a crack of black pepper and a piece of candied bacon for an extra treat.
For non-alcoholic options, we suggest serving coffee and tea from Weaver's Coffee and Tea, along with a selection of premium juices like fresh-squeezed orange juice, grapefruit juice, pomegranate juice, and white grape juice. Plain sparkling water is also a great option for those who want a non-alcoholic spritzer.
Remember, it's all about offering a variety of delicious food items and great beverages that cater to all tastes. And don't forget to keep the event to just a few hours so your guests can get on with their day.
