He’s known for his successful #Brunchof Fun series of warehouse brunches in Sydney, and now Luke Mangan will be hosting one this Sunday, October 23, at his restaurant Salt Grill & Sky Bar at Ion Orchard.
With the festive season coming up, we thought we’d tap on the Aussie restauranteur’s experience and asked Luke to share his advice on throwing a successful brunch party. He says, “Brunch is the occasion of mixing breakfast and lunch together, resulting in a table filled with everything from egg dishes to delicious sweet pastries — and hopefully with a few glasses of bubbly, too! It’s such a nice, casual way to get together with friends on the weekend.” We fully agree, but as with any party, it can get stressful playing host. But here are Luke’s tips for planning one in style.
- SET THE MOOD “Hosting a brunch is not just about the food and drinks served, it’s the whole package. Create the perfect atmosphere with nice relaxing music, flowers and candles on and around the table and welcome drinks for when guests arrive.”
