For some the brown print might be harder to see than black, hopefully it will not fade with time. Despite the brown font, the recipes are easy to read, one to a page, many even taking up more than one page, but still remaining relatively easy to fix for the ordinary cook.. There are only a few pictures, but most recipes really don't need diagrams. The index is very detailed, done by name, ingredient, or subject
Information includes 'how to do brunch' and menus for special occasions. Since these are recipes from the restaurant do not expect many fix ahead ones, they are not there. Included are quick breads, muffins and scones, many egg recipes, pancakes, waffles, sandwiches and salads, brunch meats, starters and sides, juices, cocktails, toppings and sauces. There are about 137 recipes, not including the drink and topping ones.
There are not very many brunch cookbooks around, if you collect cookbooks or want something different this is for you. That reason alone would be a reason to get this book.
