Best breakfast/brunch book I have lately read completely with excitement and anticipation for every page. The recipes are fairly easy to prepare with simple ingredients. The ricotta cheese pancakes are absolutely devine, but the waffles with rhubarb comote and whipped cream, and also the sweet potatoes hash are my favorites. The drinks are all very enticing too. Just wish I could visit the restaurant itself.

I discovered this book from a review in Life Magazine. Brunch seemed like a lovely, civilized way to entertain, but how do you cope with cooking omelets for more than two people or getting everything fresh/warm/chilled to the table in a timely fashion?

This books answers those questions. The baked omelet cassarole sounds delish. I can even make orange marmalade (once my orange tree really gets to producing). You can buy the oranges too, if you don't have a tree.

The book also suggests themes, so you can make a party of brunch and there are even drink recipes (bloody Marys, bellinis and a blackberry-bay leaf spritzer).

The recipe for Smoked Salmon Benedict is worth the price of the book but there are so many other recipes for those of us who love to entertain and/or those of us who think Brunch is the best idea anyone ever came up with!

I ordered this book because we love brunch at Five Points and especially because my husband loves their lemon ricotta pancakes. I got up early one Sunday morning to surprise him by making the pancakes that he always orders when we go the restaurant. I didn't think the pancakes would turn out the same as those we love eating at the restaurant but he said they were just as good. I scored BIG points that day with him. It's a great recipe when you want to impress someone. The book, as a whole, is a great go-to cookbook when you have loved ones or guests on a Sunday morning. There will be plenty of yums, oohs and ahhs when you serve anything from this book.
