Brunch . . . Good Friday

For Easter Weekend, I like to entertain friends on Good Friday so that they have Easter Sunday with their family.  A late brunch is my preference as then you have the rest of the afternoon and evening to have a pyjama day.

I chose varying shades of purple as for me that is an Easter colour . . . with a few additions, the flowers I had for last weekend are still lovely.  This time I thought it would be nice to use my very dramatic china, Fitzgerald by Noritake.  It reminds me of the rooms of malachite I spent some time in at the Winter Palace, and of course I love green.

This is the menu that I have chosen to serve this year.

Mimosa

Ambrosia

Honey Almond Salad with Poppyseed Dressing

Salmon with Lemon & Capers

Tomato Tart with Gruyere Chesse

Cherry & Almond Scones

Apricot Frangipane Tarts

Swirled Pound Cake served with Whipped Cream & Fresh Strawberries

      HI there . .. thaks for popping by .. would be interested to know how you found me . .. seriously!! Mimosa is a mixture of orange juice and champagne and can also have the addition of an orange liqueur for additonal flavour. I used a sparkling wine as it was cheaper than Champagne and added some soda water to also add fizz. Hope that helps.
