It’s a big brunch today, as the chef is going to be taking a little vacation – a recipe reconnaissance, you could say – for a couple of weeks.
There’s a lot of good stuff to fill you up today, though. The lazy warm mocha coffee of Glen Hansard; the starburst rainbow fruit salad (heavy on limes) of “She Brings the Sunlight”; the plump rows of beets (beats?) in Rush’s garden; the granola and soy milk of The Dreaming Spires; the free form scrambled eggs of Annette Peacocok’s “Pony”, the burnt grits of “Oh Well”, and the soothing syrupy pancakes of “An Ending (Ascent) II”.
Watch out though, that pancake syrup can really jam up your computer keyboard, not to mention it’s effect on record player needles. A stack of pancakes does make for beautiful music, however.
