Brunchin’ times

October 10, 2014

BRUNCH. Now I’d say its a fairly important meal of the day, especially if like me, Breakfast isn’t your thing. Personally I feel like Saturday is truly the most “brunchable” day of the week.

Picture this:

You meet up with friends around, say 11am, spend copious amounts of time catching up, ordering food, laughing and such. Then a certain realisation kicks in, what am you going to do with the rest of your day. You look at your watch and see its now 3pm, you’re shocked but you also find it quite hilarious that you’ve been there for so long. You decide to continue the chilled day with a walk around London for a bit, you stumble across a rollerblading party, right in the middle of Green Park. You feel like you are genuinely in another time, let’s say the 80s, where everything is just so chilled and fun; then you retire home, lie on your sofa and spend the evening watching Scandal with your friends.

Isn’t this what ideal Saturdays are made of, well I think so. As you’ve probably guessed, that was pretty much how I spent my Saturday a few weeks back and honestly, a good brunch, like the one at Chotto Matte, was the key to that Saturday being perfect.. okay okay, perhaps it wasn’t the only key, but they do have a seriously awesome menu!

Easter is literally round the corner and everyone has their own way of celebrating, with Haagen Dazs they’ve produced a pretty epic dessert with the main components being chocolate and of course ice-cream!

A fews back, they invited a few of us to the store in Leicester Square, so that we could try and re-create said dessert. The original was created by TV food stylist Phil Mundy, but we were tasked to make our own original and unique..  It went..interesting-ly..
