At our house we probably love brunch more than any other meal, because it not only incorporates the best parts of breakfast and lunch, it can be eaten in pajamas while drinking a cocktail at 1pm and still be culturally acceptable. This past weekend, we attended the final show of my son's band, Verse (http://www.bridge9.com/verse), which was both amazing and exhausting, then slept in accordingly the next day. Such 11.30am risings call for substantial refuelling, which was accomplished in the form of roasted potatoes, caramelized onion quiche, tempeh "crab" cakes with vegan remoulade sauce, and mixed berry muffins. The source for all this delicious awesomeness was none other than Vegan Brunch, which for anyone who's been living under a rock this past month or so is Isa Chandra Moskowitz's latest publication. You can read all about it here: http://www.theppk.com/vegan-brunch.html, but believe me when I say there are so many great things in this cookbook that we'll be eating brunch morning, noon and night for the foreseeable future. My advice to the gentle reader is as follows: go buy a copy, then immediately figure out which ten things you want to cook first so you can stop at the market for supplies on the way home from the bookstore. Then get busy, because brunch is the most important meal of the day, no matter when you eat it!
