Need some food inspiration? Brunch doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg! You can make it right at home with ingredients you already have. It’s all about plating the right items together and presenting them in a unique and vibrant way. I’m here to help you with just that on my new feature: the Great Covid Brunch Gallery!

I’ve been busy during the covid19 pandemic perfecting the art of brunch. It started as a way to pass the time but quickly turned into an exploration of how food affects my mental health. The routine of making a meal; the experience of colour, taste, texture; the joy of being able to inspire others to make something new using common ingredients.
Food is an essential aspect of how we relate to one another, and so during the year of social distancing this has been an important outlet for me. It’s been a way to stay in touch with the outside world. I lost my job in March 2020 and felt quite a bit of shame and uncertainty about my future when everything shut down and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to work for a long time. So, despite the ups and downs, a good breakfast or brunch has been one of the things keeping me going!
That was one of the primary motivators for me to finally turn this food blog from idea to reality (albeit slowly). And now, I’ve got a growing list of food and drink recipes for you, some easy, some fancy, but all delicious, and with room to play around and add your own unique flair!
There are carousels of brunch plates on my Instagram page, along with highlights that describe the items on the plate in detail. You’ll clearly see some patterns emerge. My family has started to make their own bread, which has quickly become a staple for me. I’m an omnivore; I can and will eat everything. But there are some vegetarian and a couple vegan friendly plates here as well.
Of course, enough description. I hope you will enjoy the plates on the Great Covid Brunch Gallery. As of writing this, I’m experimenting with adding captions or descriptions in other ways. Please let me know in a comment if you have any feedback! Thanks for your time.
