Brunch Club x Côtes du Rhône

7 chefs, 7 dishes

 

 

The Brunch Club is back ! Our 7-course tasting brunch prepared by 7 chefs from Brussels will be back on October 10th.

After a summer break dedicated to the Summer Brunch Club, the Brunch Club is back at Humphrey’s on Sunday, October 10 for a special Côtes du Rhône edition! 🍷 And we are super excited, obviously.

But not only are we back, we’re taking things to the next level : the two next Brunch Clubs will be exclusive editions, where a wine pairing of 5 different Côtes du Rhône wines will be proposed to you by a sommelier. Each of these wines are part of yearly selection, chosen by a professional jury and highlighting different producers from the Côtes du Rhône region.

If you know the Brunch Club already, you know our brunch concept is closer to a gourmet experience than an actual brunch. Well this time, we’ve stepped up our game even more (and the price remains the same, which is even better).

It’s super hard not to be completely in love with Savage’s concept. A restaurant where meat and fish dishes are considered to be sides, and vegetables are the real deal. It fits perfectly with the times we live in, it’s simply right on point. For Joël, the chef, it’s something he’s been used to as a kid, and it makes even more sense to him now.

I’ve got just what you need, said Polo, heading back to the kitchen, after we asked him for wine recommendations. Half a minute late he was back with a bottle of Onda Anomalia, an Italian natural wine, with the taste and color of fruit candy. He poured us three glasses after warning us – this, it’s just beautiful, you’ll see. And it was. But not as much as the discovery we were making that evening. From the wine selection, the place, the food and even Polo himself, we loved every little thing at Palette that night.

In January 2018, Chris and Marc opened their bakery at number 11 of Avenue Jean Volders. Their ambition: to make Brussels a city where you can find good bread. Not so simple. However, three years later, thanks to the help of Mathieu, their star baker, Boulengier has become one of the leading references for sourdough bread in our capital.

Chris tells me that with Marc, his partner and best friend, they wanted to work with natural leaven, organic flours, and long rising times. Basically: to have a dough rise as naturally as possible. At their place, the bread rises 24 hours, which makes all the difference with a “normal” bakery, where the average is about 2 hours.
