Less functional than breakfast and more informal than lunch, brunch brings you the best of both worlds. Louise Pickford’s fabulous recipes provide a perfect weekend opportunity to indulge in all the foods we crave all week, both sweet and savoury.

Divided into 5 chapters – Late Breakfast, Classic Brunch, Early Lunch, Sweet Things and Drinks – Brunch features traditional as well as new, imaginative recipes, from delicate, sweet luxuries such as Walnut Cake with Coffee Syrup, to big, hearty belly-fillers such as Mushroom Burgers with Shallot Jam and Garlic Mayonnaise. All the dishes can either be made in advance or rustled up in no time at all, leaving you free to relax with your guests and enjoy the food.
