  Publishers Weekly Review

In his 13th cookbook, Flay makes a compelling case for brunch at home: "The drinks won't be watered down, the food will be amazing... and you can keep the party going as long as you like." Flay provides an incredible 140-recipe blueprint, but readers must put in the time and no small amount of effort to pull them off. To set the mood, the opening chapter plies readers with drinks: blackberry-bourbon iced tea, and blood orange Campari mimosas make for brunching al fresco heaven. A section on spreads and syrups segues into a truly indulgent assortment of pancakes, waffles, and French toast, along with dessert-inspired concoctions: carrot cake pancakes with maple-cream cheese drizzle, gingerbread pumpkin waffles with buttermilk-bourbon caramel sauce. On the savory end of the spectrum, Flay shows his love for cross-cultural cooking (as well as a penchant for jalapeño), with dishes such as mole-rubbed steak and eggs with chocolate stout beurre blanc, and Calabrian scrambled eggs with jalapeño pesto bruschetta. He rounds out the collection with a substantial selection of side dishes, some of which could easily stand on their own: cast-iron home fries with toasted green chiles and creamy garlic dressing, chorizo-potato cakes with black beans and salsa verde. These bold, flavorful moves from Flay's breakfast playbook will leave readers salivating. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
Summary
Known for his skills at the grill, since 2010 Bobby Flay has also been sharing his other passion with television viewers- brunch. In Brunch @ Bobby?s, he includes recipes for his all-time favorite breakfasts. Starting with the lip-smacking cocktails we have come to expect from Bobby-along with spiked and virgin, hot and iced coffees and teas-he then works his way through eggs; pancakes, waffles, and french toast (including flavored syrups and spreads); pastries (a first for Bobby) and breads; salads and sandwiches; and side dishes all in signature fashion. Eggs Benedict head to the Gulf Coast for an upgrade, served atop homemade johnnycakes and crab cakes with Old Bay hollandaise sauce. Pancakes get a double dose of chocolate before being drowned in salted caramel sauce. English popovers come stateside when made with cracked black pepper and Vermont cheddar. And salmon definitely benefits from a bright and crunchy Brussels sprout-apple slaw. Pull up a seat at the table, grab a glass, and enjoy the Sangria Sunrise! This is how Bobby does brunch.
