Whether you’re planning for an upcoming holiday, or just getting together with the girls, spring calls for celebration. What better way to welcome the new season than with a DIY brunch, hosted at home, in your garden or backyard?
Relish the flavors of fresh ingredients, expertly prepared with your Thermador appliances, and become the host with the most by following our how-to guide for the most spectacular spring brunch.
Every good brunch begins with a fresh cup of coffee. Dazzle your guests with their favorite beverage, personally prepared at the touch of a button!
With the Built-In Coffee Machine from Thermador, enabled with Home Connect™, coffee customization settings store up to eight personalized beverages with names so you can quickly prep your guests’ preferred drinks—from a single shot espresso, to tea, to extra-large cappuccinos. If guests want to explore a new recipe, you can access exclusive coffee-inspired recipes from your phone or tablet with the Home Connect™ app.
Plan Your Plates:
Spring dishes are all about fresh ingredients, and when hosting a backyard brunch, you’ll want to be sure you’re serving dishes to appease every palette.
Start with something light, like a Fresh Fruit and Quinoa Salad made on your Thermador Range. For something more savory and hearty, experiment with our Crab Cakes with Dijon Garlic Aioli, which are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
You can’t go wrong with a Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata prepared in your Thermador Oven. Serve warm with toast, fresh tomatoes or fresh fruit (like the salad) for an easy meal. For another fresh take on a breakfast tradition, try our Thermador Breakfast Butternut Squash and Kale Hash made on your Rangetop or Cooktop.
Perhaps your guests have a sweet tooth? Our Cinnamon-Pecan Rolls are a tasty “twist” on a brunch classic, made from scratch in your Steam Oven. Your Steam Oven is sure to make deliciously moist desserts, without transferring flavor if cooking additional recipes at the same time. For a light and airy dessert to round out your menu, try our Lemon Honey Cake baked in your Thermador Oven.
Make It Boozy:
Brunch is better with a little booze. As the warm spring air comes in, cool off with one of our delicious, boozy “pop” recipes made in your Thermador Freezer.
The Mimosa Pops, for example, are a modern take on a brunch staple. Mix fresh orange juice, champagne, white grape juice, sugar and orange bitters for a delicious treat. Bellini Pops are also a go-to for brunching. This three-ingredient option is made easy with peach nectar, Prosecco and sugar.
For guests looking for a traditional Bellini or Mimosa, store your favorite Champagne and Prosecco to perfection with Thermador Wine Refrigeration, and show it off with the Presenter Shelf that puts your favorites on display.
Delight in the Flavors a Second Time:
When your celebration comes to a close, you may have leftover frittata, cinnamon rolls or hash. Reheat these leftovers in your Steam Oven to give them new life as breakfast in bed the next day. Reheating with steam ensures your nutrients are retained, while enhancing your recipes’ flavor.
