New Year, New Friends, New Beginnings

New Year's Brunch 2011, courtesy of David Weidman

It’s been exactly a year since this blog began and as with every new year, there’s a feeling of optimism and hope in the air.

So far, 2011 has gone off to a great start. I rang in the New Year at the Down and Out Bar in Downtown Los Angeles with some new friends. Later that day, one of them, Tonya, invited us and some of her other friends to her loft in the industrial district for french toast.

Little did I know it would be a full-on brunch cooked by a friend of hers, David Weidman, who’s a cook “by both hobby and trade.” The “french toast” was actually panettone french toast, stuffed with mascarpone cheese(!) and not only that, but he cooked up some whipped cream scrambed eggs, apple-smoked bacon, fried potatoes and poached peaches, marinated in wine, vanilla bean and cinnamon. What a great way to start off the year!

David is planning to run a bakery business called To Die For… and is planning to sell his wares at a farmer’s market near you. Look out for it!
