29 Mar The best time that’s considered brunch
Originating from Great Britain as far back as 1895, the portmanteau word, “Brunch” is a blend of the words breakfast and lunch. Brunch is a meal that’s typically eaten in the late morning or early afternoon, usually between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm. The meal combines the elements of breakfast and lunch and is oftentimes consumed alongside some sort of alcoholic
drink, usually a glass of champagne or a cocktail.
Origin of brunch
As mentioned earlier, the word “Brunch” gained its roots in Britain. The meal was consumed on Saturdays and Sundays. Evidence from the 1895 British Punch magazine suggests that the meal originated from the British upper-class homes. The meal was used to represent a Sunday meal for “Saturday-night carousers” to foster relationships over a meal.
According to Guy Beringer’s segment in Hunter’s weekly, “Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”
In modern times the meal has branched out its roots in various other cultures and is no longer only restricted to weekends but can be had on weekdays as well.
Classic foods served for brunch
Many meals can be served for brunch, ranging from timeless breakfast foods like freshly-baked pastries or brewing cups of coffee to more lunch-inclined selections like plates of pasta or sandwiches.
Some parts of the world consider brunch a special meal reserved for certain occasions, and as a result, brunch is sometimes offered as a gift during birthdays, engagements, or special anniversaries. Additionally, some hotels and resorts offer the meal as a plus for their guests on weekends, particularly when traveling on cruise ships, or vacation getaways. Also, some restaurants offer the meal especially if they have some sort of lunch or breakfast service already established.
All in all, brunch is a meal to help fill in the nutritional gap left from missing either breakfast or lunch, and that can be enjoyed while chatting about your day with the ones you love, or savoring every bite in comfortable solitude.
