Gabriela's Brunch!

So, in a genius twist to the formula, Gabriela had the bright idea of hosting a brunch party rather than dinner; more hours of boozing time right?!? Yeah! She was whisking up a storm in the kitchen, while one by one the guests arrived. Greeted by bellini's and the sunday papers...

After a couple of glasses the eagerly awaited first course arrived... French Toast!

With syrup and cinnamon and more bellinis!

Guests all cleaned their plate and then went for a little nose around Gabriela's lovely flat...

Flicking through her New York photobooth snaps and admiring a formidable Marc Jacobs shoe collection...

The main course kicked off with Bloody Mary's. They had a kick too, with tabasco and extra pepper. And extra vodka.

Before long the main course of Eggs Al Forno (baked eggs) arrived...

Then on to the third course of little Mexican cookies called Polvorones and fields of strawberries covered in dark, white and delicious maya gold chocolate!

And knowing the group's penchant for a good cheeseboard, Gabriela had chosen expertly from Neal's Yard and accompanied her selection with Spanish quince jelly.
Scoffing slowed to grazing and the group eventually rolled back onto the sofas to finish reading the papers while the final round of secret scoring took place in the next room.

All our hosts are now dying to find out the results, and we bet you are too! Well, all will be revealed after our results party next week. Before then, look out for Gabriela's recipes and let us know who YOU think should win!
