First, We Brunch is a visual feast and poetic love letter to eating great food in one my favourite cities in Canada. I love how Rebecca takes a contemporary look at what brunch is, and reminds us it's no longer that stuffy weekend standard, but an über fresh, casual, and creative meal to eat any time of the day, made better in the company of good friends and a cocktail. Her book goes beyond recipe sharing—it’s a deeply affectionate and personal tour of what makes great food: the restaurants and neighbourhoods they’re in, the people who cook, the ingredients, and, of course, the eaters too!” —Jennifer Danter, acting executive food editor, Canadian Living


“If a delectable brunch—home cooked or enjoyed out—makes you happy, then this scrumptious book will have you grinning ear to ear.” —Eric Akis, Times Colonist food writer and best-selling author
