Format: Hardcover
I absolutely love the pictures and design of this book. It's so clean and modern and fresh, and the angles and light are so pretty.

I got this as a gift and was excited about it, and I like the organizational structure of it: It's divided into Late Breakfast, Classic Brunch, and Early Lunch. But as I read it, I discovered I already knew how to make a healthier version of almost all the recipes that appealed to me. Some of them were just so weird for breakfast, like Salmon and Sweet Potato Fishcakes. Maybe they wouldn't be if, like the author, you are British, I guess. On the other hand, there are some unique takes on old standards, like Pannetone French Toast with Coconut Milk and Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese. I'd say my favorite recipes are the Asparagus Fritatta and the Baby Custard Tarts. The second, however, is time-consuming, so I doubt I'll make it often.

I guess the major redeeming feature is the section of drinks (raspberry and rosewater yogurt smoothie--yum!), including some delightful and imaginative morning cocktails (leave it to an English girl to come up with those, huh?)

Kind of novice-y if you're an accomplished cook. Maybe a little challenging (though well-explained) if you aren't. But beautifully presented comfort food with an English flair, either way.

Format: Hardcover
THis book doesn't really offer information for doing a brunch. It has a limited amount of recipes. Some of them are as obvious as adding fruit and milk to store purchased granola. Or ones like adding icecream to coffee. There are much better breakfast books and brunch information than this book.
