Something orange fresh from the market: Carrot cake for the easter brunch
In fact I like easter because it reminds me of these sunny sunday mornings in spring when you wake up early as a child to go for egg hunt in the garden. The grass is still wet and there is a slight of dust above the fields. You can imagine little rabbits hobble along with you. And after having spent 2 hours in the garden - because there was always an egg to well hidden somewhere we couldn’t find it - it was a huge pleasure to spend the day sitting around the kitchen table with family and friend and eat a batch of colored eggs and homemade raisin buns. Now that I can’t be home for easter every year, I love to have a brunch with friends. This year I had a particularly special and comforting day with my food design friends in Antwerp - discussing about food, taste and pleasure. After the first course with pancakes, carrot cake, scones, pains perdus, fruit salad, savory beetroot cake and a little of champagne, we relaxed on the sofa with a cup of tea for starting to eat a second and third course during the day.
