Whet Your Appetite

Impress your guests with the best brunch classics with a twist and original recipes from Victoria’s Fairholme Manor Inn Spring is all about warmer weather, blooms of colour and lazy Sunday mornings. After hibernating much of the winter, spring inspires the entertainer in us. One of the favourite get-togethers of the season is hosting a brunch for close friends and family. Sylvia Main’s follow-up cookbook to Fabulous Fairholme – Easy Elegance From Fabulous Fairholme – is filled with easy-to-follow recipes for breakfast, brunch and lunch.


Of course there are those luxurious brunch classics such as French toast, waffles and pancakes, but Main also offers delights, such as ricotta lime muffins and her signature individual baby potato, cheese, bacon and thyme frittatas. Main believes the best brunch menus include something sweet and savory.
