In Annecy, it is possible to enjoy a good breakfast in a unique setting. Very trendy, brunch is an opportunity to share a good moment, while eating healthy and balanced food. Discover the best addresses in the lakeside city.
Brunch, a gourmet stopover
If we take the first two letters of the word “breakfast” and the last four of “lunch”, we get the word “brunch”. This type of meal comes straight from the United States. The concept? To have a snack that replaces breakfast, but also lunch.
A successful brunch is a meal with many preparations. The portions are small and served with tea, coffee or fresh fruit juice. It allows you to eat only once before dinner time. Depending on the country and the region of the world, the products and recipes offered are different. There are three rules for enjoying a well-balanced brunch:
- As brunch is quite high in calories, fresh fruit and vegetables should be preferred, in salads, quiches, omelettes, juices or soups.
- The portions should be small, so as to vary the pleasures and taste the many recipes. Another option is to eat brunch finger food, i.e. vegetable dips, mini-brochettes and wraps dipped in flavoured cottage cheese or melted chocolate.
- Cereals and proteins should be chosen in favour of wholemeal bread, rye bread, muesli, eggs and white meat rather than cold cuts.
