BREAKFAST

+ Eggs Brusselois

Pedro is cute and furry. He knows this. Given his esteemed self-regard, he sits at the head of the table. Literally ON the table. And watches and waits. For the coffee being hand ground, milk being foamed, bread toasting away, Hollandaise sauce being whipped up and drizzled atop the chicken. Breakfast of champions and Pedro...

+ epic failure

Cuisine Wrangelstrasse 5 made coffee and rolled sleeves up for the very first initial never-before-tried home made pancakes. Not just any pancakes, but orange zest and banana pancakes. It was a great vision. Unfortunately, these brown paddies hardly resemble anything delicious. So I added some sliced bananas and an orange piece to take the camera...

+ sunday morning

Every once in a long while, breakfast requires a spike. By which I mean Brooklyn style breakfast, complimentary Mimosas. OJ or Apple Juice works for the bubbly mixture. But either start with a coffee or finish with one. (Wouldn’t want the entire day to languish into Monday) Since it’s virtually impossible to get a proper...

Red and pink always works well with black. So peel a grapefruit, wash some raspberries. Combine into a simple bowl and place on a black surface. Take a photo, then discard, or eat for a healthy vitamin filled breakfast.

They’re not the most beautiful looking croissants. But Cuisine Wrangelstrasse 5 did try. That counts for for something…in eternal life points? Filled with raspberry jam, they were within the boundaries of “edible.” Unfortunately, the jam started leaking out and the whole thing ended up as a series of bleeding-to-death croissants.

The next step to world domination is a motorcycle. VERY necessary. And what better than the classic black beauty: R75 by BMW? Digressing and incidentally, I have terrible depressive memories of Black Beauty, it should never be categorized as a child’s story. Moving on, The R75 was a World War II era motorbike, and yes...

+ breakfast at 11

Especially on a Saturday should breakfast proceed after the 11am strike. This morning, Cuisine Wrangelstrasse 5 started in for the classic scrambled eggs. Chopped paprika, onions, and mushrooms colorfully support the sans-croissant breakfast revolution.

APOLOGIES, the blog’s been dry for a few days, BUT we’ve got a whole spammage of amazing photographs to show all the way from Nice/Bagnols-en-Foret/San Remo/Fréjus/Sainte-Maxime! Fresh air, delicious food, crisp wines, and the best of companies in the south of France.

+ the breakfast jam

The smell of fresh baked bread runs through the kitchen and when you slice down, the crust crackles beautifully. Oh yes, you all know this scene. And you know you love it. Kerrygold melted over bread is DELISH, but what you need to take the taste to the status of “heavenly” is the jam. Preferably...

+ breakfast vs brunch

The definition of breakfast versus brunch is a tricky one. With the weekend in possible view, I put this to the question. So…in my extensively knowledgeable experience, BREAKFAST is a transitory/ephemeral experience, usually categorized by stress and an espresso. Is your dress shirt on right, where the *TEET!* is my coffee, is it going to...
