I was thrilled to be asked by The Local Palate to be a contributor for the April Issue. Not only do I love this publication, but I am a bit enchanted with the topic at hand – how to host a spring brunch. I love gathering my nearest and dearest for lingering afternoons full of laughter and stories. I find the trick to a successful brunch is setting a lovely and cozy table paired with a heart warming menu and a festive spring cocktail.
We especially enjoyed developing this story at our boutique hotel in Charleston, S.C., Zero George. I recommend picking up a copy of the magazine as it is full of fresh southern food trends and “in the know” regional recommendations.
More of the story and some of my entertaining tips are shared below… Cheers to the first official day of Spring!
