A Hunch for Brunch
Easy execution makes a classically casual meal even better.
“Brunch is the heart of the weekend: a meal that’s meant to be savored with friends over easygoing
conversation,” says renowned cookbook author Dorie Greenspan.“It is the ultimate in relaxation.”
Even if your menu tends toward the gourmet, creating brunch should be smartly simple. The key: tried and true KitchenAid appliances that have been updated with ahead-of-the-curve technology.
Take, for example, the classic toaster—found in every kitchen since its inception. KitchenAid has created a top-notch toaster collection that addresses the needs of today’s smart chefs—both the brunch newbie and the experienced hand. Well-equipped for toasting everything from extra-wide bagels to fine artisanal breads, these smart tools use innovative technology to make sure your bread is crisp—not burned. Auto sensors lower your bread to begin toasting, and button-controlled motorized lifts let you check it mid-cycle. Prefer only the interior side of your bread crisp? Not a problem. Simply change the setting. Finally, a brilliant keep-warm feature makes sure your toast is toasty when you’re ready for it.
And of course, the linchpin of an affable brunch: coffee. There are as many different ways to brew and serve coffee as there are people who drink it, so hosting the café-inclined can be tricky. Even the most discriminating coffee aficionados will be pleased with the joe made by the new line of brewer-friendly KitchenAid coffee makers. Including removable water tanks, variable brew strength settings and a flat brew basket, their goal is to help you create the perfect cup of coffee. Then, all you have to do is enjoy—and isn’t that what brunch is all about?
