An Extra-Special and Unique Brunch or Shower Menu

We recently did a special brunch for a group at PEM (Peabody Essex Museum) and it was done with a twist -- a welcoming set of passed items for the guests while they gathered.  I thought it was a lovely idea, so we are sharing the menu with you here.   This event was served at a fairly normal brunch time -- 10:45 am to 12:30 pm -- and this would make an outstanding menu for a shower as well.

Passed Items

Assorted Mini Quiches and Crustless Frittata Bites

Toasted Mini-Bagel Halves with Smoked Salmon, Caper-Onion
Relish and Chive-Dotted Crème Fraiche

Passed Yogurt, Fruit and Granola

Mini Scones with Fruited Icing Dip

Bite-Sized Bruschetta with Herbed Focaccia 
Mushroom or Tomato Toppings

Ginger and Orange Chicken Bites on a Skewer with 
Scallion-Soy Cream


Seasonal Fruit Platter

Sliced Smoked Ham with Apricot and Almond Relish

Breakfast Strata with Spinach, Artichoke and Gruyere

Sweet Potato Home Fries with Caramelized Onions and Thyme

Assorted Dessert Bars

Freshly Brewed Coffee, Tea and Decaffeinated Coffee

$35 per person

If you are interested in this menu for an event you plan to host here or at PEM, let us know by calling Catering at 978-825-4358.

I hope you enjoy seeing this yummy food!
