Brunch - a culinary tradition

Brunch - a culinary tradition

  • Some food historians think that the meal has its roots in England's hunt breakfasts - a multi-course meal with goodies such as chicken livers, eggs, meats, bacon, fresh fruit, and sweets.
  • Others think that Sunday brunch comes from the practice of Catholics fasting before mass and then sitting down for a big midday meal.
  • Then some trace the origins of classic brunch dishes to New York's dining spots.

The popularity of Sunday brunch

The word "brunch" first appeared in print in an 1895 Hunter's Weekly article. The author suggested an alternative to the post-church Sunday meals favouring a lighter meal served late in the morning.

Brunch is a tradition that became popular in the United States in the 1930s. After WWII, large numbers of American married women entered the workforce. But they needed some relief on Sunday, thus the rise in popularity of Sunday brunch.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
