Luxirare's 'Monk's Head Brunch' packs the best of Parisian snack foods onto a single plate. The post gets at the monotony of midday meals, often the site of banal French toast dishes and basic scrambled eggs.
Freshly shaved bits of Monk's head cheese shake up the brunch lot here. Warmed butter rolls are used as the gooey base upon which sliced figs are stacked. The directions recommend the use of a Girolle to carve the thin slices, a tool that can be purchased at most kitchenware stores.
The Monk's Head Brunch adds an unexpected alcoholic twist to its take on French cuisine. Dried apricots are soaked in a bowl of Grand Marnier with shredded bits of hot pepper, giving way to sweet and savory flavors.
