Pop-Up Brunch with Chef Brad Briske

Some kids have favorite actors, athletes, and musicians. Mine have a favorite chef: Chef Brad Briske of La Balena and Il Grillo


So, when I saw that Brad was going to be a guest chef at the Scotts Valley farmers market pop-up brunch (click for the pop-up brunch series), I bought tickets immediately. Unfortunately, Jake was wrapped up with the house remodel and under the gun with his deadline. So, he didn't get to come with us. I let the boys invite a friend instead.




POTATOES SAVORY AND SWEET
potatoes, peavetta, golden raspberries, and herbs


STRAWBERRIES AND CHOCOLATE
Live Earth Farm strawberries with Ashby Confections’ chocolate


PORCHETTA BRUSCHETTA
Companion Bakeshop open-face sourdough, Fogline Farm pig, fried egg, greens and honey




SWEET FINISH
plum tart, almonds and lavender syrup


As always, Brad and his dishes delighted all of our senses. Everything was delicious, beautiful, and perfectly in season.



Here are my happy boys. They had a blast!


And so did I. We love Chef Brad!!
