Leisurely weekend brunches have become the most anticipated meal of the week, and no two people know that better than Matt Basile and Kyla Zanardi. With their token humour, Matt and Kyla share their passion for this midday spread and showcase indulgent and creative takes on their favourite dishes. Sometimes, brunch is a comforting routine, where simple ingredients are whipped into fuss-free OG Buttermilk Pancakes, a Mascarpone Soft Scramble, or Good ol’ Hash Browns. Then there are irresistible dishes taken to a whole new level, like Coconut Fried Chicken and Pineapple Waffles, S’mores Pancakes, and Family-Style Chimichurri Steak and Egg Tacos. Incredibly satisfying, easy to prepare, and perfect to share, these recipes will be dished out and devoured by friends and family.
Whether you’re hankering for a nostalgic bite–think Western Omelette Grilled Cheese–or looking for something on the lighter side, like Hearty Granola with Grilled Peaches, or you need a boozy drink to cap it all off (perhaps an Aperol Spritz Mimosa), Brunch Life has something for everyone. More than just food, brunch is also a culture. Featured throughout, Matt and Kyla share their travel adventures in six cities across North America–San Francisco, New York, Nashville, Seattle, Vancouver, and Toronto–and explore how this epic meal is enjoyed far and wide. Brimming with over 70 delectable recipes and gorgeous photography, it’s time to serve up a fresh take on this favourite weekend tradition that will inspire you to gather around your table any chance you get.
