As a kid, there was one treat my parents could always roll out like a carrot on a stick to get me and my sister to behave: brunch. They’d take us to a local hotel for their brunch buffet.
I used to love walking in. Taking in the mountains of pastries, the smell of the trays of bacon, eggs and hash browns, the omelette station, the cheese table, and who could pass up the dessert table. Yes, I’m amazing I didn’t weight more as a child.
We went back to one hotel a few years ago for a New Years Day brunch, and I was amazed at how it had changed. Sure the classics were there, but now there was a sushi station, a tapas bar and an Eggs Benedict bar. I mean come on, how can you choose. The kid in me wished I had a bottomless stomach.
So, this is where this awesome summer brunch is inspired from. We have Eggs Benedict three ways (including with fried chicken!), some scrummy summer roast potatoes with lemon and a beautifully vibrant blueberry feta salad with a balsamic dressing. Making it a true summer brunch is my take on the classic screwdriver, combining orange, lemon and lime juice with vodka.

The quality of your food is really important, and where possible you always want the food to be of higher welfare. Preferably organic and free-range. I love visiting farmers markets, but not everyone has these around. So here are some easy suggestions to get you eating more healthily:
If you’re in the USA Butcher Box is a great source of Free-Range Organic Chicken. If you click the link and use the code AP10 to save $10 off your first order!
In the UK, Riverford is a great source for both organic fruit and veg as well as higher welfare meats.
